(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, and is intended for surveys
at 200um and 350um.
Its aim is to survey the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effects.
Construction is slated to begin in 2017 for operation in 2021.
