Abstract
BATMAN flies is a compact spectro-imager based on MOEMS for generating reconfigurable slit masks, and feeding two arms in parallel. The FOV is 25 x 12 arcmin2 for a 1m telescope, in infrared (0.85–1.7μm) and 500-1000 spectral resolution. Unique science cases for Space Observation are reachable with this deep spectroscopic multi-survey instrument: deep survey of high-z galaxies down to H=25 on 5 deg2 with continuum detection and all z>7 candidates at H=26.2 over 5 deg2; deep survey of young stellar clusters in nearby galaxies; deep survey of the Kuiper Belt of ALL known objects down to H=22. Pathfinder towards BATMAN in space is already running with ground-based demonstrators.
