Viper is a 2-meter off-axis telescope designed to measure small-scale anisotropy in the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation. It is currently deployed at the South Pole, operating with a 40 GHz HEMT receiver. We are attempting to measure primary anisotropy in addition to secondary anistropy from the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (S-Z) effect. Preliminary data will be presented, along with a description of plans for future cosmological and non-cosmological observations.
