Abstract
The silicon tracker for the engineering model of the GLAST Large Area Teles cope (LAT) to date represents the largest surface of silicon microstrip det ectors assembled in a tracker (2.7 m(2)). It demonstrates the feasibility o f employing this technology for satellite based experiments, in which large effective areas and high reliability are required. This note gives an over view of the assembly of this silicon tracker and discusses in detail studie s performed to track quality assurance: leakage current, mechanical alignme nt and production yields.
