Under the agreement, Intelsat will provide satellite services via Intelsat 28 located at 33[degrees] East, and Gondwana will provide ground support and network management services from AfricaOnline's facilities at Hartebeesthoek
in South Africa.
Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO), 30 km north-west of Krugersdorp, is a national research facility for radio astronomy managed by the NRF.

Paul Brook (Oxford University, UK) and colleagues analyzed fluctuations in PSR J0738-4042's pulse pattern using observations taken with the Hartebeesthoek
Radio Astronomy Observatory in South Africa and the Parkes radio telescope in Australia from 1988 to 2012.
Washington, March 28 ( ANI ): While the first results from the European Space Agency's Planck satellite has been released, astronomers at the Hartebeesthoek
Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO) near Johannesburg are working on a new radio telescope that will also shed new light on the very earliest moments of universe.
In 1961 it was moved to Hartebeesthoek
, west of Pretoria and renamed the Deep Space Implementation Facility.
Norbert Bartel of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics told the meeting that if optical astronomers though they had a hard time getting telescope time in a hurry, they should have been in on the 58 hours of telephoning it took to arrange simultaneous observations by the two radiotelescopes in the Southern Hemisphere capable of this work, which are located at Hartebeesthoek
, South Africa, and Tidbinbilla, near Canberra, Australia.
Students are supervized by scientists from universities as well as the specialist research organisations doing work in astronomy such as the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) in Cape Town, the Hartebeesthoek
Radio Observatory (HartRAO) in the west of Gauteng, and the South African Square Kilometre Array Project (SA SKA) in Johannesburg.
The 26m Hartebeesthoek
Radio Astronomy Observatory (HartRAO) near Pretoria teamed up with one of the seven 12m dishes currently part of the Karoo Array Telescope (KAT-7) over 900 km away to jointly observe and record data from a distant radio source known as 3C273.
The founding of a satellite tracking facility, established near Johannesburg in 1958 with a more permanent facility built in Hartebeesthoek
in 1961, was funded by the United States (US) space agency, National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), and manned by South Africans.
