The brand new ALMA SCO, located in Vitacura district in Santiago of Chile, houses the Director's Office and its associated functional units, as well as astronomers, technicians and administrative staff. The SCO will eventually host the ALMA archive.
The ALMA Operations Support Facility, at an altitude of 2900 metres in the Chilean Andes, will serve as the focal point for the ALMA operations. Antennas are assembled here before being moved to the Array Operations Site at 5000 metres altitude.
