This paper describes develop of a two channel echelle spectrograph, Solar Chromospheric Flare Spectreograph (SCFC), to observe the optical spectra at the locations of ares and explosive events on the Sun. The SCFS will record are spectra in two channels in the wavelength range of 350-890 nm, which has several chromospheric spectral lines. The SCFS will have a multi-fiber based slit capable of observing at 100 locations of the active region magnetic field polarity inversion lines. The field of view of SCFS will be 80 x 80 arc sec with spatial resolution of 8 arc sec. The spectral resolution of 60,000 will be adequate for measuring Doppler velocities of about 5 km s-1. The instrument is designed using off-the-shelves optical and mechanical parts with minimum fabrication at an in-house machine shop. The SCFS will be integrated with the full-disk Ha telescope at the Big Bear Solar Observatory that is operating semi-automatically around the year except for weather interruptions. The SCFS observations will be mainly used to study the physics of flares, but part of the time will be devoted to classroom educational activities.
