SAFIRE is an imaging Fabry-Perot spectrograph covering 145μ m-655μ m, with spectral resolving power of ~1500. Selected as a PI instrument for the SOFIA airborne observatory, SAFIRE will employ a two-dimensional pop-up bolometer array to provide background-limited imaging spectrometry. Superconducting transition edge bolometers and SQUID amplifiers have been developed for these detectors. SAFIRE will be a first light instrument for use during the initial SOFIA operations.
