Abstract:

This grant was awarded to develop the necessary hardware to carry out a deep sky survey at the near-infrared wavelength of 2 microns. The grant was also to cover an initial operating period after which funding would be sought from other sources to finish the survey. The survey strategy consists of placing a near-infrared array with a silicon charged coupled readout CCD at the focus of a transit telescope on Kitt Peak, Arizona.
