Abstract: We have developed a new extraction software package called aXe that was specifically designed to handle the ACS spectrophotometric data. Using a pair of direct/grism or direct/prism images, aXe can extract tilted spectra, estimate and subtract the local background, wavelength calibrate, flat-field, and flux calibrate them. Due to the increasing number of instruments on modern telescopes capable of performing spectrophotometric observations similar to those of ACS, aXe was designed to also be used with non-ACS data.
