This ITT addresses the industrial Phase A system studies for LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna), the candidate for third large class mission (L3) in the Science Programme. LISA is a gravitational wave observatory using laser interferometry between three spacecraft in drag-free control with freely falling test masses. The industrial system study will consist of parallel contracts with a duration of 20 months and aim at reaching a preliminary feasible design of the space segment, including: the interfaces to instruments provided by the Member States and potential international partners, to the ground segment, and the launcher; the definition of the metrology telescopes; development planning and programmatic assessments; support to the review activities at the end of Phase A.
