An up-to 200-night radial velocity follow-up effort is being prepared for FIES, the high-resolution Fiber-fed Echelle Spectrograph at the 2.56-meter Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT). With support from NASA and MIT, the program aims to provide confirmation and mass measurements for exoplanet candidates discovered by TESS around bright, nearby stars. The observations are expected to start in mid-2019, and we are currently upgrading FIES to ensure the best possible level of precision and stability.
