SAFIRE is a versatile imaging Fabry-Perot spectrograph covering 145 < \lambda 655 \mum, with spectral resolving powers ranging over 5--104. Selected as a ``PI'' instrument for the airborne Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astonomy (SOFIA), SAFIRE will apply two dimensional pop-up bolometer arrays to provide background limited imaging spectrometry. We describe the instrument design and its application to a range of astrophysical investigations.
