Abstract
An array of four telescopes has been fabricated to sufficient precision and stability to serve as a testbed for phased array imaging experiments over a wide field of view. The overall optical and mechanical design philosophy is given as well as the analysis of fabrication and assembly tolerances. Finally the fabrication, assembly and alignment methods are described.
