Paper Abstract

The SIM system testbed III (STB3) is a 3-baseline interferometer mounted on a full-scale flexible structure developed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The goal of the testbed is to demonstrate angle and fringe tracking of a dim star by feeding-forward the information from two interferometers looking at bright guide stars. This paper presents the optical architecture of STB3 and the first results obtained with the first interferometers running.
