Abstract
Introduction The fully integrated Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) (Ford et al. 1998, SPIE Vol. 3356, 234), suc- cessfully installed in the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in early March 2002, underwent a series of ground calibration tests at Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation (BATC) and at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) to verify its performance and flight readiness (Hartig et al. 1998, SPIE Vol. 3356, 321). The flight build detectors were installed in late 2000 and the majority of the flight quality data were acquired in the following year. The activities revolved around several major campaigns designed to characterize the flight build detectors and the optical and ultraviolet channels of the instrument and to verify the contract-end-item specifications. In the following, we briefly describe the different ground-based activities.
