Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope
(former 15 m radio telescope array in Chile)
The Swedish-ESO Submillimetre Telescope (SEST) was
a 15-meter millimeter/submillimeter
telescope in operation from 1987 to 2003 at La Silla Observatory in Chile.
At the beginning of its life, it was the largest submillimeter
telescope in the southern hemisphere.
When it was decommissioned, its bolometer array, SIMBA
was used to test Atacama Pathfinder Experiment, which was in development.
