Abstract

SuperCam is a 345 GHz, 64-pixel heterodyne imaging spectrometer being prepared for installation on the Heinrich Hertz Submillimeter Telescope (HHSMT). In the Fall 2011 the receiver will begin its survey of 500 square degrees of the Galactic plane in 12CO J=3-2. This large-scale survey will help answer fundamental questions about the formation, physical conditions, and energetics of molecular clouds within the Milky Way. The data set will be available via the web to all interested researchers. By integrating SIS mixer devices with LNAs in 8- 1x8 modules, the size needed for the cryostat and the complexity of internal wiring is significantly reduced. Here we briefly describe SuperCam's operation and report on its status.
