Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy

This grant to Caltech partially funds construction costs for the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-wave Astronomy (CARMA). Caltech, University of California at Berkeley, University of Illinois at Urbana Campaign, and University of Maryland are collaborating to build CARMA, which merges six 10-meter telescopes from Caltech's Owens Valley Radio Observatory array with nine six-meter telescopes from the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Association array on one site at Cedar Flat near Bishop, California. The CARMA Association (made up of the four partner universities) will operate the new array. Outcomes for this grant include relocation of six ten-meter telescopes, completion of the observatory, upgraded telescope electronics, development and deployment of an array computing system, and establishment of the array infrastructure.
