Abstract
We will describe an alignment system for a multimirror telescope array in which an optical light plane provides a synthetic stable platform or optical reference flat upon which are located a series of heterodyne interferometers which measure the relative phasing, tilts, etc., of each element in the array. Several approaches to synthesizing the optical light plane are presented and compared.
