We propose to build real time portable radio baseband data digital media infrastructure, enabling linking of the Algonquin Radio Telescope to an international VLBI network. This work includes the development and permanent deployment of a custom receiver, FPGA real-time acquisition, high speed streaming of digitized radio signals at 1GB/sec to a disk array, software infrastructure to coordinate and communicate with partner radio telescopes and space communication dishes.
