CCAT Prime

(CCAT-p)
(planned 6 meter submillimeter telescope in Chile)

CCAT Prime (or CCAT-p) is a smaller version of CCAT, aimed for immediate construction, ideally to serve as a pilot project for CCAT. It is to be 6 meters (opposed to CCAT's 25 meters) with a wide Field of View (FOV), and is intended for surveys at 200um and 350um. Its aim is to survey the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Effects (SZ Effect). Construction is slated to begin in 2017 for operation in 2021.
