The laser beams irradiating a target at the Nova laser facility comprise a set of ten simultaneous events. Two streak cameras whose resolutions are 40 ps record the power history for each beam five beams to a camera their time bases are cross-timed with a fiducial pulse. Analysis of data recorded for target experiments conducted over a six month period show the precision for cross-timing signals between two streak cameras to be ps and for characterizing a single temporal feature of a pulse to be ps. Beam synchronization at the end of six months was within 20 ps of the synchronization at the beginning of the experiments. A beam timing shift greater than 25 ps can be detected on a single laser shot shifts of 10 to 20 ps require several shots to detect. 1 .
