Abstract
The design of a dual polarizing bolometer detector system for use with a polarizing Fourier transform spectrometer to conduct broadband astronomical spectroscopy at submillimeter wavelengths is presented. While inclement weather precluded astronomical observations during the commissioning run, the initial performance of the system, as determined from observing laboratory calibration sources, is presented, and the implications for astronomical spectroscopy discussed.
