Paper Abstract

The results of preliminary studies using a spherical proof mass in the LISA mission are given. These include the acceleration disturbance performance, methods for controlling and calibrating a spinning sphere, system considerations, the possibility of using the spinning reference as a precision gyroscope to improve the attitude control, and a preliminary design with a spherical proof mass.
