AtLAST

(Atacama Large Area Submillimeter Telescope)
(plan for submillimeter telescope in Chile)

AtLAST (for Atacama Large Area Submillimeter Telescope) is a concept for a 50m-class telescope on the Atacama Desert with at least a 1 square degree field of view and 1000 pixel imaging capability, aimed at surveys.


Note that ATLAST (all capitalized) is also used for an entirely unrelated project: it is the name of one of the two LUVOIR proposals.
