11:00am-11:10am- Charles Romero - GBT+MUSTANG-2 capabilities and outlook
11:15am-11:25am - David Frayer - GBT Capabilities and Performance at High Frequency
11:30am-11:40am - Tony Mroczkowski - Instrumentation for AtLAST
11:45am-11:55am - Asantha Cooray - Origins Space Telescope survey science program
12:00pm-12:30pm - Instrument discussion panel: Charles Romero, David Frayer, Tony Mroczkowski, Asantha Cooray, Simon Dicker
Guiding discussion questions:
What is the maximum field of view and number of detectors that we can achieve with modest repurposing of the GBT?
What are the CMB specs of AtLAST and can it realistically achieve CMB in HD science?
How many years does it take for AtLAST to achieve 0.1uk-arcmin over 4000 sq deg, assuming 20% observing efficiency? What NET and number of detectors does that assume?
What wavelengths are the highest priority for the 1st generation AtLAST instrumentation?
Would fewer spatial elements but better spectral resolution have any advantages? (e.g. mm-wave BAO and RSD, kSZ, & rSZ at the expense of CMB sensitivity)
What is the main science from the Origins Space Telescope, and how can it complement CMB in HD?
