(radio interferometer in Canary Islands)

The Very Small Array (VSA) is a Radio Interferometer in the Canary Islands designed to investigate the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). It has 14 horn reflector antenna tunable between 26 and 36 GHz, mounted on a tip-able platform (perhaps 10 meters across) and two 3.5 meter 30 GHz dishes. It went into operation in 2000.
