Using the new AzTEC millimeter-wave camera on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) in winter 2005/06, we conducted several surveys of the submm galaxy (SMG) population. The AzTEC 1.1 millimeter surveys include both blank-fields (no significant bias or foreground contamination) and regions of known over-densities, and are both large (100-1000 sq. arcmin.) and sensitive ( 1 mJy rms). The unique power of the AzTEC data set lies not only in the size and depth of the individual fields, but in the combined surveyed area that totals over 1 square degree. Hundreds of new sub-millimeter sources have been detected. A joint analysis of all AzTEC surveys will provide important new constraints on many characteristics of the SMG population, including number counts, clustering, and variance. In particular, the large area of the full AzTEC data set provides the first significant measurement of the brightest and most rare of the SMG population. Herein we present the initial combined results and explore the future potential of a complete joint analysis of the full AzTEC SMG data set.
