e-VLBI Progress in China Zhang Xiuzhong, team of Chinese VLBI Network Shanghai Astronomical Observatory Chinese Academy of Sciences. Outline. Introduction e-VLBI Facility Development in China some e-VLBI Observation results Future Plan for e-VLBI in China. 1. Introduction.
in Year 2001, started to discuss about lunar prospect project in China. There are problems to use current Chinese R & RR satellite tracking system to do lunar probe tracking.
With Chinese Lunar Project, we have a chance to upgrade our VLBI system:
two new telescopes ( 50m and 40m )
improve the station instruments
create a data processing center (include hardware and software correlator)
the network for e-VLBI

A New Correlator
several hundred KHz
with special structure
16Mbps in real time mode, 256Mbps in non real time mode.
The result delay time: 1.5 – 2 minutes after observe time for 1 min. data
residual delay rate
The residual delay and delay rate, compare with ESA reconstructed orbit.
black for the results with hardware correlator and red for software correlator
