Operation of the Mopra Telescope for 2012OCT semester

Funding has been secured to operate the Mopra Telescope for three years, commencing in October 2012. Mopra operations will be initially funded by the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, the University of New South Wales, and the University of Adelaide.

The model for allocating observing time has yet to be finalised, however it is expected that much of the observing time will be made available to the funding organisations. A portion of the time will be made available to ATNF users under the agreement. In the first year of operation under this new model, the ATNF time will be used primarily for Long Baseline Array (VLBI) observations and for the completion of current, large, TAC-approved projects.
