Abstract

KMOS is a modular design consisting of three identical parallel segments which in turn contain eight integral field channels. The assembly and integration plan is to build up the instrument step by step and test performance at each stage. The first end to end chain was complete at the end of 2009 and testing commenced. This paper describes the philosophy and management of the test programme, the testing procedures used to study the instrument performance as the light path was built and the results obtained.
