Program Description: This project of the Space Radio-observatory of the Northeast (ROEN) involves real-time data transfer from remote radio telescopes to the central processing facility via optical fiber cables. A radio-observatory station has been installed in Brazil, located in Eusébio, close to Fortaleza.

Year Started: 2013.

Organization Description: The project is the result of agreements in 1988 and 1989 among the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) (today Geoscience Laboratory, National Ocean Services), part of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (EPUSP) with the participation of the Center of Radio-astronomy and Space (CRAAE, agreement gathering Mackenzie, INPE, USP and Unicamp) Applications and of the National Institute of Space (INPE) Researches. The project has financial support of FINEP/MCT and NOAA, in the Station of Eusébio, of property of INPE. Institutions involved are Universidad de las Américas Puebla, and Open Network of Digital Libraries (ONeDL).

Data Description: Researchers require occasional large file transfer, interactive services and real-time remote research equipment manipulation at speeds between 100 Mpbs to 1 Gbps.
