The SPIRE instrument for the FIRST mission will consist of a three band imaging submillimeter photometer and a two band imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) optimized for the 200 - 400 micrometers range, and with extended coverage out to 670 micrometers. The FTS will be used for follow-up spectroscopic studies of objects detected in photometric surveys by SPIRE and other facilities, and to perform medium resolving power (R approximately 500 at 250 micrometers ) imaging spectroscopy on galactic and nearby extra-galactic sources.
