Paper Abstract

We review a conceptual design for a moderate resolution optical spectrograph for the Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT). The spectrograph is designed to make use of the large field-of-view of the GMT and be suitable for observations of very faint objects across a wide range of wavelengths. We also review the status of the instrument and on-going trade studies designed to update the instrument science objectives and technical requirements.
