The baseline design concept for a seismic isolation component of the proposed "Advanced LIGO" detector upgrade has been developed with proofof-principle experiments and with computer models. It consists of a two-stage in-vacuum active isolation platform that is supported by an external hydraulic actuation stage. Construction is underway for prototype testing of a full-scale preliminary design.
