In the project funded by the Academy of Finland, we research how to improve data transfer, near-real time data analysis and modelling in geodetic VLBI applications. Results are applied in monitoring the Earth Orientation Parameters (EOP), such as variations in Earth rotation (dUT1) and crustal deformation studies. Additionally, we develop techniques to tie the position of the radio telescope to other instruments in Metsähovi on millimeter level.
