Abstract
We present an outline of the automated alignment system for the 350m baseline Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) which will manage the simultaneous alignment of its six principal optical subsystems (telescopes, beam relay trains, delay lines, beam reducing telescopes, switchyards, and beam combiners). Many of these components will be held under vacuum, will be subject to varying thermal loads and will use different coatings (optimized for either optical or near-IR wavelengths). We review the proposed architecture of our scheme and discuss the procedures, tools, and optical analyses we have used to design it.
