Sep. 8, 2020: UPDATE: The services enabled by the Virginia Tech SuperDARN server are now believed to be fully restored following a physical move of the hardware to new quarters. Thank you for bearing with us through the interruption. Special thanks to Kevin for managing the move and to Bharat for assisting with some technical issues.
During the 2020 SuperDARN workshop held online the SuperDARN Executive council welcomed a new group from the National Space Science Center (NSSC), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) to the collaboration and voted the PI of the Jiamusi radar, Dr. Jiaojiao Zhang, to council membership.

The Jiamusi radar, also known as AgileDARN, features new kinds of digital control electronics and has been providing data to the SuperDARN data flow since mid-2019. The radar increases SuperDARN coverage at mid-latitudes in the east Asian Sector. First results were reported by Zhang et al. (2020), see 'Read More' for bio details.

Congratulations to Dr. Zhang and her team at the NSSC!
