OLIMPO is a 2.6 meter on-axis millimeter-wave Cassegrain telescope, mounted on an attitude controlled stratospheric balloon payload. This telescope is designed to be flown with a > 10 days Long Duration CircumPolar flight. The system contains 4 arrays of bolometers in the wavelength bands centered at 150, 220, 350, 600 GHz. The instrument will be diffraction limited at 150 GHz (3.5 arcminutes FWHM). It is currently planned to have a test flight from Trapani in 2003/4.
