The National Science Foundation both uses radio spectrum for scientific research, and funds advanced research into technology employed by the telecommunications industry. NSF's Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope located near Socorro, New Mexico, is perhaps the world's most sophisticated radio receiver. The facility is operated by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, which is managed by Associated Universities, Inc., under a cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.
