EISCAT

Established in 1975 and performing fundamental research into solar-terrestrial physics and atmospheric science, EISCAT operates three high-power incoherent scatter radar systems: the VHF radar with a transmitter and receiver in Tromsø (Norway) and additional receivers in Kiruna (Sweden) and Sodankylä (Finland); the UHF radar in Tromsø, and the EISCAT Svalbard Radar (ESR) near Longyearbyen. The EISCAT headquarters is located in Kiruna. 

EISCAT is in the process of constructing EISCAT_3D, a next generation radar, to provide comprehensive 3D monitoring of the upper atmosphere and the ionosphere. It will consist of multiple phased arrays, using state-of-the-art signal processing and beam-forming techniques to achieve ten times higher temporal and spatial resolution than available from present radars

EISCAT has attended LiftOff in two editions (2017 and 2019) and it is a pleasure to host them again this year!
