(VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry)
(VLBI project to map the Milky Way)

VERA for (VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry) is a Japanese very-long-baseline interferometry array for mapping the Milky Way. The high angular resolution of VLBI allows the most distant parallax measurements from galactic radio sources. The array includes four Japanese radio telescopes with baselines up to 2300km and has been in operation since 2003.
