Paper Abstract

The advanced camera for surveys (ACS), which will be installed on-orbit in HST during the 1999 servicing mission, is being developed jointly by the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation, and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). On ACS, GSFC has contracted separately to JHU for the Principle Investigator (PI) and his science team and to Ball for development and fabrication of the instrument. In addition, GSFC is providing significant amounts of flight hardware. Led jointly by the PI, the Ball Program Manager, and the GSFC Technical Officer, an integrated product team approach has been implemented that includes members from all three organizations, ensuring an integrated approach to meeting the instrument objectives. An innovative, performance-based contracting structure has been implemented that reflects the dual objectives of meeting the science requirements within the cost and schedule constraints.
