Paper Abstract

We propose a science demonstrator for the Antarctic Plateau Interferometer. It is a comparatively much simpler system than API but dedicated to the goal of obtaining the first low-resolution spectra in the thermal infrared of a few "hot Jupiter" type exoplanets. It would provide a unique platform to acquire operational experience on antarctic stellar interferometry, and build up an extensive database on the relevant site properties, as a preparation for API.
