Inteferometric imaging with arrays of telescopes is now a routine technique in optical/infrared astronomy, delivering images with nano-radian resolution. Sensitive next generation arrays, such as the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer, thus offer a potentially important capability for space situational awareness, allowing satellites in geo-synchronous Earth orbit (GEO) to be inspected after launch. A critical factor for such observations is a lack of short spacings between the… CONTINUE READING
