[71.01] The GONG+ Network

J. Leibacher (National Solar Observatory)

The Global Oscillation Network Group obtains helioseismic data from a six-station network with an overall duty cycle of \approx 90% and will continue observing for a full solar cycle. The initial, 2562 rectangular pixel detectors are being replaced with 10242 square pixel ones, to enable high quality, continuous local helioseismology and probing closer to the surface. The GONG+ system will also provide continuous magnetograms, and offers the possibility of observing with a cadence as short as 16 seconds. We will present results from the prototype GONG+ instrument and the status of the deployment of the complete network. The Global Oscillation Network Group (GONG) project is supported by the National Science Foundation and operates in collaboration with the Big Bear Solar Observatory, High Altitude Observatory, Learmonth Solar Observatory, Udaipur Solar Observatory, Instituto de Astrof\'{i}sico de Canarias, and Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory.
