Groundstation Development     

The Institute for Astronomy is the Austrian representative to MOST. It is responsible for astrophysical research and it also hosts the Vienna ground station. Main scientific interests are pulsating stars, in particular rapidly oscillating A-type stars.

The homepage of the Institute of Communications and Radio-Frequency Engineering at the Technical University of Vienna, Austria, contains technical information about the ground segment and communication hardware.
