Located at 15,000 ft on top of the Sierra Negra in central Mexico, the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT) is a fully-steerable, 50 m dia. radio telescope used for astronomy at millimeter wave lengths.  The LMT project, jointly executed by UMass and the INAOE, was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Defense, Mexico’s Council for Science and Technology, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and the State of Puebla where the LMT is located.
