The payload is the last stage of the mirror suspension, located in the lower part of the tower in a dedicated Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) chamber. The role of the last stage suspension is to compensate the residual seismic noise and to steer the optical components maintaining the relative position of the interferometer mirrors. The experience we had with these configurations suggested us to revise the basic configuration of the payload, passing from the branched system to a new configuration where the filter 7 supports not only the coils to act on the marionette, but also those that act on the mirror: the Actuator Cage. The new mechanical structure must be designed compliant with the static and dynamic requirements of Virgo. The FEM simulation of the static and dynamic behavior of the payload, its construction, the assembly and test will be crucial tasks of this research activity.
