This is the listing of the Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) science working group. VLBI will be performed using SKA1-LOW and SKA1-MID

VLBI Working Group Introduction

A technical description of SKA-VLBI (including the interfaces between the SKA1 telescopes and the VLBI terminal), a description of science performance and a compilation of VLBI Science Use Cases for SKA can be found here

In October 2019 an SKA-VLBI workshop was held at SKA HQ, at Jodrell Bank. Presentations from the workshop, relevant deliverables from the JUMPING JIVE project etc. can be obtained one the associated web pages.
