UArizona ARO 12-meter Telescope
The Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory of the University of Arizona operates the Arizona Radio Observatory: UArizona ARO 12-meter Telescope (seen above), which is an ALMA prototype antenna located 80 km (50 miles) southwest of Tucson on Kitt Peak, and the Submillimeter Telescope (SMT) located on Mt. Graham in southeastern Arizona.
The UArizona ARO 12-meter Telescope was previously the European ALMA prototype antenna from the European Southern Observatory and was transported to Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona in 2013. This telescope is the only millimeter-wavelength telescope in the U.S. operated full-time as a national facility.
