AGO Instrumentation

The baseline instrument complement for each AGO will be as shown in the Table, although the design of the infrastructure has been such as to allow future expansion. During winter 1992 and 1993, A77 has a fluxgate magnetometer and riometer in operation. The test-bed at Halley additionally has the first prototype photometer.
