(BOSS survey follow-on)

BigBOSS is a plan for an survey in search of baryon acoustic oscillations. The aim is to use a purpose-built multi-object spectrograph (BigBOSS Spectrograph) on the Mayall 4m Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory (KPNO). It is to have "moderate" spectral resolution, and a wide field of view over which simultaneous targets can be selected.
