Abstract

We describe a balloon-borne telescope, optimized for observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) anisotropies in the mm wavelength region, at angular scales around 1-degrees. We stress the scientific motivations for these measurements and the problematics driving the experiment design. Using large throughput bolometers cooled at 0.3K we have a sensitivity high enough to detect CMB anisotropies at level DELTAT/T approximately 10(-5) in few seconds of integration time.
