Northern Extended Millimeter Array

(large radio telescope array under construction in Europe)

The Northern Extended Millimeter Array (NOEMA) project is an Interferometer array of Radio Telescopes in the French Alps Plateau de Bure at an altitude of 2550 meters, operated by the Institut de radioastronomie millimétrique (IRAM). It currently (2015) has seven 15-meter dishes with a 760 meter maximum baseline, with five more due to be added. It will be the most sensitive millimeter telescope north of the equator.

NOEMA replaces the Plateau de Bure Interferometer (PdBI) array of six 15m dishes on the same grounds.
