Кафедра радиоастрономии

The Department Branch of Radio Astronomy was organized in 2003.

Students of the department learn methods and equipment of radio astronomy, which are the basis of such disciplines as astrophysics, celestial mechanics, geodesy, geodynamics, and in solving applied problems (precise coordinate-time support, deep-space navigation, space ecology, earthquake prediction, etc.). Radiometry, radio interferometry, issues of designing radio telescopes, highly sensitive receivers, conversion systems, and high-speed digital signal recording are also studied.
