The DECI-Hertz Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory (or DECIGO) is the proposed Japanese, space-based, gravitational wave observatory.[1] The laser interferometric gravitational wave detector is so named because it is to be most sensitive in the frequency band between 0.1 Hz and 10 Hz (a decihertz).[2] It is due for launch in 2027.
