Abstract. Recent advances in bolometric detector technology have al-
lowed submillimetre (submm) wavelength measurements to contribute
important data to some of the most challenging questions in observa-
tional cosmology. The availability of large-format lled-array cameras
during the next decade, however, promises to provide far-infrared (FIR)
to millimetre (mm) observations with unprecedented imaging delity.
The simultaneous increase in the telescope collecting area of new fa-
cilities, and their location at ground-based sites with the highest at-
mospheric transmission will provide observational data with greater
sensitivity and resolution. With the opening of the Italian/French
Concordia station at DomeC in Antarctica there is now an excit-
ing opportunity to make unique FIR{submm wavelength observations
(200 850m) through atmospheric windows that are almost open to
space. The development of submm astronomy from Dome C, under-
