We describe a recent large scale survey of the Submillimeter Galaxy (SMG) population by AzTEC, a 144 element bolometer camera, on the 15m diameter James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. From November 2005 to February 2006, over 400 hours of telescope time were spent imaging over 1 square degree of sky with an area weighted target sensitivity of 0.7 mJy rms. Several fields with large multi-wavelength data sets were mapped including the Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Survey field, the Lockmann Hole, GOODS-N, and a subset of the COSMOS field. In addition we mapped fields spanning a wide range of environments including several regions with known mass over-density. Together this represents the largest/deepest survey of the SMG population. Herein we report on the technical details of the surveys, describe the reduction pipeline, and show preliminary results from a subsection of the survey fields.
