WB file - VLBI and Tied Array WesterBork Station tasking document

What is wb file? How to open wb files?

File type specification:

Document file type icon Document file type

The WB file extension is associated with the VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) and Tied Array WesterBork Station tasking document file format.

Very Long Baseline Interferometry is radio interferometry where the radio telescopes involved are not physically connected. Instead of this the signals are converted to video signals and recorded to high bandwidth tape. These tapes are brought to a Correlator centre where they are played back and correlated.

VLBI is used where the separations between the telescopes which make up the array are too large for cable, waveguide or radio links to be practical. The WSRT normally takes part in VLBI sessions as a member of the European VLBI Network (EVN) although ad-hoc experiments also occur. More information on the operations of the EVN can be found in The EVN hanbook. One way to get this handbook is via the VLBINFO account in Bologna.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .wb file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
