FLAMINGOS-2 (PI: S. Eikenberry) is a \5M facility-class near-infrared
(1-2.5 micron ) multi-object spectrometer and wide-field imager being built
at the University of Florida for Gemini South. Here we highlight the
capabilities of FLAMINGOS-2, as it will be an ideal instrument for surveying
the accreting binary population in the Galactic Center.
