KVN VLBI Observations

VLBI observations with KVN are remotely conducted at the KVN Array Operation Center in KASI, Daejeon. The obsevations are based on a schedule file in VEX (VLBI EXperiment) format. A VEX file contains various information relevant to individual observation such as sources, system setup, observing time, calibration mode, etc. The VEX file can be prepared either by using a VLBI scheduling software Sched or by modifying template VEX files. PIs are kindly asked to prepare and submit the VEX files to KVN AOC (kvnobs@kasi.re.kr) so that the AOC conducts the observations after double-checking the VEX files. PIs will be informed via email after the observations and correlations.
