J/A+AS/137/521) for 131 standard stars mapping the MKK spectral classification system. This range of parameters includes the majority of the galactic stars expected to dominate the GAIA target population, i.e. F-G-K-M type stars with metallicity ranging from that of the galactic globular clusters to Population I objects. Extension to Teff>7500K will be given later on in this series. The 254 synthetic spectra presented here are based on Kurucz's codes and line data and have been computed over a more extended wavelength interval (7650-8750Å) than that currently baselined for implementation on GAIA, i.e. the 8500-8750Å. This last range is dominated by the near-IR Ca II triplet and the head of the Paschen series. The more extended wavelength range allows us to investigate the behaviour of other strong near-IR spectral features (severely contaminated by telluric absorptions in ground-based observed spectra) as the K I doublet (7664, 7699Å), the Na I doublet (8183, 8194Å) and the lines of Fe I multiplet N.60 at 8327 and 8388Å. The synthetic spectra support our previous conclusions about the superior performance of the Paschen/Ca II 8500-8750Å region in meeting the GAIA requirements when compared to other near-IR intervals of similar Δλ=250Å.
