Additional Information:

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole Station is the preeminent facility for high energy neutrino multimessenger astronomy. It was built by the US National Science Foundation (NSF) and foreign partners and has been in operation for nearly a decade with an acclaimed, diverse science program that has yielded multiple scientific breakthroughs. The IceCube Upgrade is an NSF-supported mid-scale project with significant contributions from worldwide non-NSF sources. It will extend IceCube with an additional array of dense optical sensors to measure neutrino oscillation parameters and to perform a precision characterization of the ice to boost the performance of the IceCube instrument. The Upgrade project additionally lays the groundwork necessary to undertake future larger scale facility enhancements into IceCube-Gen2 forecasted for the next decade. The Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC) manages IceCube operations, the IceCube Upgrade project, and planning for IceCube-Gen2.
