The spectrum of eight-times ionized iron, Fe IX, was studied in the 110-200 {\AA} region. A low inductance vacuum spark and a 3-m grazing incidence spectrograph were used for the excitation and recording of the spectrum. Previous analyses of Fe IX have been greatly extended and partly revised. The numbers of known lines in the 3p^53d - 3p^54f and 3p^53d - 3p^43d^2 transition arrays are extended to 25 and 81, respectively. Most of the identifications of the Fe IX lines from the 3p^53d - 3p^43d^2 transition array in the solar spectrum have been confirmed and several new identifications are suggested.
