[9.14] The GSFC {\sl`Phoenix'\/} Advanced Camera for HST

E.S.Cheng (NASA/GSFC), S.Neff (NASA/GSFC), A.Smith (NASA/GSFC), R.Windhorst (ASU)

We provide an overview of the technical capabilities of the proposed {\sl Phoenix\/} Advanced Camera for HST, along with a summary of the science which is enabled by this next-generation camera. We maintain flexibility through the development phase by adopting an exceptionally modular design. Such an approach allows for increasing the scope and capability of the camera, as well as planning for some descope potential as a form of development contingency. Deployment is currently planned for the 1999 HST Servicing Mission.
