Abstract
The Next Generation Space Telescope project in its early definition phases has given birth to many innovations in instrumentation for astronomy by providing funding for industries in an area often considered less lucrative and hence of lower interest. New alliances were formed with universities and institutions and the knowledge exchange lead to very interesting new concepts. The Imaging version of the Fourier Transform Spectrometer (IFTS), a derivative of the classical Michelson interferometer that has been used successfully in spectroscopy for decades, was introduced in military applications in the mid 80's with small FPA (- 2 X 4).
