The BOOMERANg-B03 experiment has performed three surveys (deep, shallow, galactic) of selected regions of the southern sky. Maps of the Stores parameters I. Q, U at 145, 245, 345 GHz have been obtained, covering several hundreds of square degrees, with a resolution of ~ 10'. In the deep and shallow surveys, both at high Galactic: Latitudes, the 1 45 GHz I map is dominated by CMB anisotropy. The angular power spectrum cj 1 is consistent with previous measurements from BOOMERanG-B98 . with extended multipoles range and improved precision. A polarized CMB component is detected in the deep survey. The level and shape of cjE and cfE are consistent with the CMB polarization expected in the adiabatic inflationary model best fitting the c7r. Foregrounds are shown to be negligible in the deep survey at 145 GHz.
