The BOOMERANG experiment provided the first high resolution map of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation. In this paper we summarize the main parts of the instrument, including bolometers, cryogenics, optics and pointing system. We show then how the instrument is designed to be robust to systematic effects.
