Instrumental Considerations
The emerging technology of large
submillimeter-wave focal plane arrays
will revolutionize the sensitivity and
speed of single-dish telescopes
Fast, wide-field, moderate resolution
(10") submillimeter-wave imaging
capability is needed
Smithsonian Submillimeter Array (SMA) and
Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) are
sensitive, high-resolution instruments with small
(15") field of view
