Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Submillimeter Telescope (BLAST)

BLAST incorporates a 2-m primary mirror with large-format bolometer arrays operating at 250, 350 and 500 microns. BLAST provides surveys from 0.8 to 200 deg2 at a resolution of 30“, 42” and 60“. The units of the HEALPix maps are Mjy/sr.

A detailed description of BLAST can be found in the following paper http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2008ApJ...681..400P
