Abstract: The Next Generation Space Telescope will provide more than ten times the collecting area of the Hubble Space Telescope in a package that fits into the shroud of an expendable launch vehicle. This paper illustrates the operation and performance expected for initial telescope alignment, segment phasing, and fine figure control for the NGST yardstick design.
