28 July 2008 The wide-field imaging interferometry testbed (WIIT): recent progress and results
Author Affiliations +
Research with the Wide-Field Imaging Interferometry Testbed (WIIT) is ongoing, and in the past year we have achieved several important milestones. We have moved WIIT into the Advanced Interferometry and Metrology (AIM) Laboratory at Goddard, and have characterized the testbed in this well-controlled environment. The system is now completely automated and we are in the process of acquiring large data sets for analysis. In this paper, we discuss these new developments and outline our future research directions. The WIIT testbed, combined with new data analysis techniques and algorithms, provides a demonstration of the technique of wide-field interferometric imaging, a powerful tool for future space-borne interferometers. Algorithm development is discussed in a separate paper within this conference.
