Abstract

I describe the IR and X‐ray campaign we have undertaken to determine the nature of the faint discrete X‐ray source population discovered by Chandra in the Galactic Center. These results will provide the input to the FLAMINGOS‐2 Galactic Center Survey (F2GCS). With FLAMINGOS‐2's multi‐object IR spectrograph we will obtain 1000s of IR spectra of candidate X‐ray source counterparts, allowing us to efficiently identify the nature of these sources, and thus dramatically increase the number of known X‐ray binaries and CVs in the Milky Way.
