Business Review

At the Aragats Scientific Centre, a unique tool is located known in international scientific circles as a radio-optical telescope of Herouni (ROT-54/2.6). It is a large double-reflector antenna with a diameter of 54 m combined with an optical telescope with a diameter of 2.6 m. Such a system is the first and unique in the world.
The Armenian antenna has a number of significant advantages over other large antennas in the world by a number of parameters. ROT-54/2.6 is applied in the space exploration and the deep space communications.
The design and construction of ROT-54/2.6 started in 1980. Since 1985, adjustment works on the antenna have started. In 1987, the radio telescope was commissioned. The radio-telescopes of this type are named "mirror radio-telescope of Herouni".
