Northern Extended Millimeter Array

The NOrthern Extended Millimeter Array (NOEMA) is a twelve-antenna expansion of the Plateau de Bure Interferometer in the French Alps, operated by the Institut de radioastronomie millimétrique. The NOEMA project is funded for 10 antennas and will be the most sensitive millimeter array in the northern hemisphere. [1]
