Arecibo Observatory Radio Telescope, National Astronomy And Ionosphere Center, Arecibo, Puerto Rico

Beginning in FY 2010, NASA began contributing $2M/year for Planetary Science, particularly the study of near-Earth objects, at Arecibo. NASA is implementing this funding through its Near Earth Object Observations program.
In 2010, the National Science Foundation issued a call for proposals for the management of NAIC beginning in FY2012. On May 12, 2011, The National Science Foundation informed Cornell University that it would no longer be the operator of the NAIC, and thus of the Arecibo Observatory, as of October 1, 2011. The new operator is SRI International, along with two other managing partners, Universities Space Research Association and Universidad Metropolitana, with a number of other collaborators.
