3 Global Network of Adv. GW Observatories Global Network of Adv. GW Observatories LIGO-LLO: 4km LIGO-LHO: 2km+ 4km GEO: 0.6km VIRGO: 3km KAGRA 3 km (2017) Network  1. Detection confidence 2. Duty factor 3. Source localization 4. Polarization LIGO-India Time delays in milliseconds India provides almost largest possible baselines. (Antipodal baseline 42ms) Jan 16, [Sathyaprakash, Fairhurst, Veitch, Schutz, Klimenko, Reitze, Whitcomb, LIGO-T (2012)]

4 LIGO-India: A proposed mega-science project in India’s next 5-year plan A project on Indian soil with International Cooperation Involvement at the threshold of a major science discovery aLIGO-USA precedes LIGO-India by ~3 years. Staggered time-line  is an advantage. – Indian experimenters would participate in aLIGO-USA – Significant US expertise will pave way for faster execution of LIGO-India US hardware contribution ready: no uncertainty in timeline – aLIGO is one of NSF’s most ambitious funded projects – LIGO-India got positive reviews, NSB approval for NSF to proceed as it deems best. Expenditure entirely in Indian labs & Industry. Very significant Industrial capability upgrade. Indian DAE labs & Industry assessed to be in position to carry out phase-I of LIGO-India. (Senior LIGO team visited Indian labs & facilities in Aug,Oct, Dec 2011, Feb 2012 ] Well defined training plan  Generate large number (~100) of highly trained scientists. Major data analysis centre for the entire LIGO network. Huge opportunity for Indian University participation. Jan 16, 20134GW - New Frontiers, Seoul

Yes Does the community have sufficient scientific, technical and managerial ability to implement such a vast project? Yes Would adequate funding and support be available? Very Likely Can the project be sustained over ~15 years? Yes Is there a suitable site? Several possibilities In the past year (Nov. 2011), pre-approval phase: Miles covered, inches to go …. to ward Indian govt. approval. Post-approval: Enormous Challenges ahead, but gearing well up to face them In the past year (Nov. 2011), pre-approval phase: Miles covered, inches to go …. to ward Indian govt. approval.
