Paper Abstract

The Large Millimeter telescope (LMT) is a 50 m diameter telescope currently under construction in Mexico. We describe the first generation continuum instruments for the LMT - BOLOCAM II, a 144 pixel array receiver, and SPEED, a 4 pixel array of frequency selective bolometers. Together, these two instruments form a complementary set of continuum receivers designed for efficient mapping and source follow-up at mm-wavelengths. An overview of the instruments, the telescope, and the key initial science is given.
