8 Bands provide excellent photometric redshifts for high z objects
4 Square degrees and separation greatly reduces errors due to
large scale structure.
High spatial resolution avoids confusion limit.
47 layer dielectric multilayer results in reasonable VIS/NIR wavelength separation at 35 degree incidence angle
Science 4x4 array
Guiding arrays on
one focal plane only
In drift away or L2 orbit the mirrors
instrument and detector systems are
radiatively cooled with no cryogenics
Data transmission requires only 5 hours
of DSN reception per day on a moderate size receiver equivalent to the Univ. of AZ 12m dish on Kitt Peak.
