The Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) will be the world's first large-scale dedicated VLBI facility. It is planned as a multi-purpose instrument, supporting continuum, spectroscopic, astrometric/geodetic, multi-frequency, bandwidths synthesis, polarization, and pulsar measurements - with a variety of bandwidths, sampling rates, quantization schemes, and multi-band modes. The Array will consist of ten new 25-m precision antennas, in an optimized geographical configuration.
