In March 2004, the EISCAT Scientific Association submitted a proposal for a Design Study for a new incoherent scatter radar, which is planned to replace the existing UHF and VHF radar systems. The consortium putting forward the proposal comprises the EISCAT Scientific Association, the University of Tromso, the University of Lulea and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. The proposal was reviewed under EU framework 6, and it seems likely that it will be funded to a level of approximately 2 million Euros over four years, beginning in May 2005.
