Abstract
VISION is the next generation science camera for the Navy Optical Interferometer (NOI). In comparison to the current beam combiner of NOI, VISION will deliver higher precision data products and better exibility by incorporating single mode bers for spatial ltering and by using low-noise detectors. VISION can coherently combine up to six telescope beams using an image-plane combination scheme. This results in simultaneous measurement of 15 visibility amplitudes and 10 independent closure phases that can be used to reconstruct multipixel images of stars.
