We present the results of a detailed technical study of the use of image slicers for multiple integral field spectroscopy at infrared wavelengths. Our solution uses independently controlled robotic arms to relay selected portions of the focal plane to fixed positions where they are dissected using a set of advanced image slicers. We discuss the technical requirements of this approach and describe a feasibility study to examine the risks and technical challenges.
