23 June 2006 Concept design study of the CCAT facilities
Author Affiliations +
The Cornell Caltech Atacama Telescope (CCAT) is a joint project to design and construct a 25-meter class submillimeter telescope in the Atacama region of northern Chile. The conceptual design and cost analysis done by M3 Engineering and Technology Corporation (M3) incorporates a cost trade-off of three optional sites and a baseline design of the facilities at Cerro Chajnantor. The details covered in this paper provide the final concept design of the CCAT facility, the decisions and rationale of the design process as well as a critical risk assessment of building at high altitude sites.
