This paper presents a procedure to perform fully autonomous on orbit alignment of the interferometer on board the LISA technology package (LTP). LTP comprises two freefloating test masses as inertial sensors that additionally serve as end-mirrors of a set of interferometers. From the output signals of the interferometers, a subset has been selected to… CONTINUE READING
