Abstract: The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) is building a submillimeter-wavelength interferometer array. The telescope will be located at a high mountain site and will operate between 200 and 900 GHz. The array will consist of six movable 6 m antennas on a Y-shaped track with maximum baselines of 500 m, giving subarcsec resolution. It will operate simultaneously in two different bands and will have a versatile spectrometer.
