PUMA is a proposed ultra-wideband low-resolution interferometric transit radio telescope operating at 200-1100 MHz composed of thousands of 6m dishes. It is optimized for intensity mapping of the redshifted 21cm line over z=0.3-6 to study dark energy and inflation. The same design also allows an unprecedented study of fast radio bursts and pulsars.
