Summary: Funding for LOFAR-UK computing at Hertfordshire.

Project abstract: The current proposal requests a continuation of STFC support for LOFAR for the 5-yr period 2016-2021, to enable the UK to remain a leading member of the consortium. Continued funding is requested for the operation of the Chilbolton station, data transport to the Netherlands, and the ILT subscription towards central LOFAR costs. In addition, a new request (at the level of ≈£15k/yr) is made for operational funding of the LOFAR-UK Compute Cluster, to facilitate broader UK involvement in LOFAR data analysis.
