Paper Abstract

We have worked to define the compelling next generation General Astrophysics science that the 4m implementation of the HabEx mission concept might enable. These science drivers have been used to define requirements for a far ultraviolet (FUV) spectrograph design for the telescope design that meets the needs of these programs. We describe both the drivers and the baseline design for the instrument, the modes it might support, and the choices that were made to optimize the performance. The operational performance of the instrument in cooperation with the rest of the telescope design is also discussed.
