The L3 muon spectrometer is presented. Characteristics, useful for experiments at future accelerators, are highlighted. Particular emphasis is given to the systems envisaged to keep the error on the relative alignment of detectors below 30 μm and so reach a momentum resolution Δp p = 2% at p = 45 GeV/c.
