Beacon Receiver

The first beacon satellites receiver wasinstalled in 2010 in collaboration with Koyoto University of Japan and the second beacon satellites receiver was installed in 2011 in collaboration with Spdankyla Geophysical observatory, Oulu University of  Finland. The systems are able to track Low Earth Orbitting (LEO) satellites.



The GPS-SCINDA system was installed in 2007 in collaboration with the American Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). The   system records the Total Electron Content (TEC) and the GPS signal scintillation parameter.

The Virtual Lab

The VIRTUAL laboratory was established in 2008 with a primary objective of developing different kinds of virtual tools that can be used as teaching aids in lieu of real scientific instruments. The Laboratory is equipped with 24 IMAC desktop computers and five MacBook Pro laptop computers. 


Instrumentation and Automation Unit (IAU)

The Washera Geospace and Radar Science Laboratory is operating many instruments.   These instruments need continuous follow up and proper maintenance.  Also, the different groups of WaGRL will develop new instruments for various applications.  The Instrumentation and Automation Unit is responsible for maintenance and continuous smooth operation of the instruments and also make new ones based on the design and the requirements of the different groups.

Astrophysics Unit (AsU)

The astrophysics unit is  established recently and now responsible for investigating the suitability of Abune Yosef and Aboy Gara Mountain chain in Lalibella region of Ethiopia for radio and optical astronomical observations.
