FIRI (Far Infra-Red Interferometer) is a concept for a spatial and spectral Space interferometer with an operating wavelength range of 25-400 µm and sub-arcsecond angular resolution, and is based on the combination of Stellar Interferometry and Fourier Transform Spectroscopy to perform spectroscopy at high angular resolution in the Far Infrared. The resulting technique is referred to as Double Fourier Spatio-Spectral Interferometry (Mariotti and Ridgway 1988). To study the feasibility of a FIRI system the Far-Infrared Interferometer Instrument Simulator (FIInS) has been developed. To demonstrate its functionality, the simulation of an observation of a circumstellar disk around a Herbig Ae star is presented.
