Abstract

We describe OLIMPO, a balloon-borne telescope devoted to cosmological and astrophysical surveys in the mm and sub-mm range. We summarize the relevant science (principally surveys of SZ clusters, of the sub-mm cosmic background and observations of galactic and cirrus dust) and the innovative sub-systems we have developed. The test flight of the telescope is planned for July 2004; the long duration flight is planned for the end of 2005.
