Paper Abstract

The first phase of the VLTI is now almost completed with 8 available telescopes, 2 science instruments and complementary facilities (in particular a fringe tracker and angle tracker). The next step will be the integration of PRIMA and the development of the second generation instruments for which a thorough understanding of the performance that can provided by the VLTI facility is required. This is the basic purpose of this ongoing complementary characterization. The rationale of this activity is recalled and the methods used as well as the results obtained so far presented.
