Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy

(CARMA)
(array of radio telescopes in eastern California)

The Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA) was an interferometer array of 23 radio telescopes at Cedar Flat in the Inyo Mountains, California, with a maximum baseline of 2 km. The array was in operation from 2004 to 2015. It utilized existing telescopes transferred from other sites and since its decommission, there has been some re-use of the telescopes.

ALMA is the newer, similar array with improved capability.
