    Abstract

    Recently, new and interesting science drivers have emerged in the ultra low frequency range of 0.3-30 MHz ranging from the epoch of re-ionization, exo-planets, ultra-high energy cosmic rays and studies of the astronomical dark ages. However at these wavelengths, ground based observations are severely limited due to ionospheric distortions below 50MHz, manmade interference, complete reflection of radio waves below 30MHz and even solar flares (1).
