Abstract
Project Orion will provide a facility for performing high energy density plasma physics experiments at AWE. The laser consists of ten, nanosecond beam lines delivering a total of 5kJ with 0.1-5ns temporally shaped pulses and two short pulse beam lines, each producing 500J in 0.5ps with intensity > 10^21 W/cm^2. The performance of the Orion laser is reported as the first phase of commissioning (one short and one long pulse beam) concludes. Target shots with all beam lines will begin in 2012.
