The NANOGrav collaboration consists primarily of participants from 14 different North American institutions. The participants range in experience from full professors to first year undergraduate and high school students. Each one has a unique skill set to contribute to our goal of detecting gravitational waves.

NANOGrav is committed to forming partnerships with institutions in order to further NANOGrav's scientific goals
The primary observing instruments used by the NANOGrav collaboration are the 305-m diameter Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico and the 105-m Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia. We also have the ability to use the Expanded Very Large Array in New Mexico and the Allen Telescope Array in California.
Observations at AO and the GBT are now using GUPPI and PUPPI for observing and timing millisecond pulsars. These instruments are some of the most advanced digital spectrometers for radio astronomy available anywhere in the world.
