KOSMOS and COSMOS are nearly-identical modified versions of the OSMOS spectrograph in use on the MDM Hiltner 2.4-m telescope, and adapted for use on the 4-m telescopes at KPNO and CTIO. The design modifications, fabrication, assembly and test are a joint effort between Ohio State and NOAO. KOSMOS was delivered to the Mayall for testing in October 2013, and COSMOS should be delivered to the Blanco in early 2014.
