Project objective

The goal of the BSA-Analytics project is to search for pulsars and fast transients of the RRAT/FRB type.
This task was made possible by a combination of a number of factors. These factors are: <

  • modernization of the antenna BSA FIAN, after which its sensitivity increased 3-4 times;
  • the possibility of monitoring on the antenna in 96 independent directions in the sky;
  • collected archive of monitoring observations going since 2014;
  • availability of digital receivers that allow recording on small time constants and in many frequency channels;
  • availability of a programmer capable of solving all technical problems.

The project was started in 2015, when we created the program BSA-Analytics, discovered first pulsars, and published first articles.

Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory

This picture was taken from a quadrocopter 4K // DJI Mavic 2 (video of Wind of Eternity). It shows all the radio telescopes of Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory of Astro Space Center (PRAO ASC LPI).

  1. Big Scanning Array of Lebedev Physical Institute.
  2. RT22 - radio telescope with diameter of 22 meters.
  3. Dipole cross-shaped radio telescope (length 1 km), East-West direction.
  4. Dipole cross-shaped radio telescope, North-South direction (this part is currently not working).
  5. Building for the management of IPD and BSA.
  6. Building for the management of RТ-22.
  7. Village Bolshoe Gryzlovo and other settlements. (Pushchino is located on the opposite side).

BSA-SpaceWeather Project

Another area of work performed at the BSA FIAN radio telescope is the study of the Sun. One of the results of many years of work is the creation of a prototype of the Space Weather service. The second part of our website is dedicated to this project - «BSA-SpaceWeather».
