EAGLE is a Phase A study of a multi-IFU, near-IR spectrometer for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). The design employs wide-field adaptive optics to deliver excellent image quality across a large (40 arcmin2) field. We summarise the functional and performance requirements that flow-down from the science case and provide illustrative performances from simulated observations.
