Constructed by Carnegie Mellon University and the National Radio
Astronomy Observatory, the submillimeter tipper
uses an ambient-temperature pyroelectric detector to monitor 350 micron
radiation. A stepper motor drives an off-axis paraboloid mirror, allowing the
instrument to scan from zenith to horizon. The tipper is currently taking
the roof of the AST/RO building at the
South Pole. Modifications to the tipper
are planned to incorporate it within the AASTO
package of instruments.
