The Harvard Radio Meteor Project is a scientific investigative station based within Harvard university.

The Harvard station is investigating data specifically upon the height, the deceleration (speeds [1][2]) and the distribution of ionized material within the trail of meteors. The method involves a system of radar producing stations using data that has originated from the reflected pulse returning from the ion columns of meteors.[3][4][5]

The antenna used at the Harvard station (main site) is described as a double-trough type antenna.[6]
