The Submillimeter Common User Bolometer Array instrument (SCUBA) built at the Royal Observatory Edinburgh for the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (JCMT) is described. The instrument contains two arrays of individual conical feed horns hexagonally packed with single mode waveguide feeding bolometers at 0.1 K cooled by a dilution refrigerator. SCUBA is predicted to allow for significant advances in the study of the solar system as well as in stellar, galactic and extragalatic cosmology.
