This paper describes the synchronisation system under development on the Laser Mégajoule (LMJ) in order to synchronize the laser quads on the target to better than 40ps rms. Our architecture is based on a Timing System (TS) which delivers trigger signals with jitter down to 15ps rms coupled with an ultra precision timing system with 5ps rms jitter. In addition to TS, a sensor placed at the target chamber center measures the arrival times of the 3ω nano joule laser pulses generated by front end shots.
