Paper Abstract

The University of Arizona and the Max-Planck-Institut fur Radioastronomie are collaborating to construct a sub-millimeter wavelength radio telescope facility at the summit of Mt. Lemmon (2791 m above sea level) near Tucson, Arizona. We have designed a corotating building to protect the 10 m diameter Sub-Millimeter Telescope (SMT) against storm damage, to provide large instrumentation rooms at the Nasmyth foci, and to minimize degradation of the reflector profile accuracy and pointing errors caused by wind forces and solar radiation.
