Abstract
The High-resolution Near-infrared Spectrograph (HRNIRS) concept for the Gemini telescopes combines a seeing-limited R ~ 7000 cross-dispersed mode and an MCAO-fed near diffraction-limited R ~ 20000 multi-object mode into a single compact instrument operating over the 0.9 - 5.5 μm range. We describe the systems engineering and performance modeling aspects of this study, emphasizing simulations of high-precision radial verlocity measurements in the Gemini Cassegrain-focus instrument environment.
