Science / project summary
The project plans to deploy a 12 m radio antenna to Thule Air Base (TAB) for VLBI operation at 230 GHz prior to installing the telescope at Summit Station for higher frequency Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) and submillimeter operation. Deployment at TAB will enable the team to test functionality, measure characteristics, make critical adjustments and observe astronomical sources. This is a crucial first step towards Summit deployment where a key objective is to provide direct confirmation of a Super Massive Black Hole (SMBH) by observing its shadow image in the active galaxy M87. Radiometer: The science objectives are to survey TAB's atmospheric opacity at 225 GHz, utilizing the data in Greenland Telescope sensitivity prediction models. The Radiometer is a passive narrow-band receiver monitoring the sky at a frequency of 225 GHz. It is an automated tipper that repeatedly scans the atmosphere from zenith toward the horizon in a chosen direction.
