Paper Abstract

As part of the JCMT Future Instrumentation Project, the EAO looks to optimize the premier niche of the facility as the go-to telescope for fast, deep wide-field mapping of the universe at 345 GHz (850 um). The next generation heterodyne array for JCMT will be designed to provide deep ultra-fast mapping capabilities that takes advantage of the full field-of-view available to the telescope, and an array of 90 SIS mixers. This paper presents a preliminary design options and the critical science drivers for the project.
