Abstract
StarLight, a NASA/JPL mission originally scheduled for launch in 2006, proposed to fly a two spacecraft visible light stellar interferometer. The Formation Interferometer Testbed (FIT) is a ground laboratory at JPL dedicated to validating technologies for StarLight and future formation flying spacecraft such as Terrestrial Planet Finder. The FIT interferometer achieved first fringes in February 2002. In this paper we present our status and review progress towards fringe tracking on a moving collector target.
