Accompanying the development of the PACS photometer camera (60–210 μm) on the Herschel Space Observatory, CEA/SAp and CEA/LETI have developed a new type of filled bolometer arrays. We present a camera using these “CCD-like” detectors for ground-based submillimeter applications. Such an instrument could potentially be operated in all atmospheric windows between 200 and 870 μm on a submillimetre-wave single-dish telescope at Dome C. A bolometer array could consist of several monolithic units of 16 × 16 pixels (as an example the blue and red PACS arrays consist of 4 × 2 and 2 × 1 units, respectively), providing a full sampling of the focal plane.
