Paper Abstract

The Science Advisory Committee (SAC) of the Thirty Meter Telescope Project (TMT) is nearing completion in its deliberations on defining a set of instrumentation capabilities for the first decade of operation. These are encapsulated in the SAC’s Science Requirements Document (SRD). We focus here on issues related to the challenges posed by the proposed first generation requirements for both seeing-limited, wide-field spectroscopy for the UV/optical and for integral field unit (IFU) spectroscopy for the near infra-red (NIR).
