The concept of a recently proposed small-scale interferometric optical imaging device, an instrument known as the Segmented Planar Imaging Detector for Electro-optical Reconnaissance (SPIDER), is of great interest for its possible applications in astronomy and space science. Due to low weight, low power consumption, and high resolution, the SPIDER telescope could replace the large space telescopes that exist today. Unlike traditional optical interferometry the SPIDER accurately retrieves both…

Radio astronomy image reconstruction in the Big Data era

It is shown that PURIFY’s methods provide higher dynamic range than traditional image reconstruction methods, providing a more accurate and detailed sky model for real observations, and sets the stage for state-of-the-art image Reconstruction methods to be distributed and applied to next generation interferometric telescopes.

Lenslets combination optimal design of the segmented planar image detector for electro-optical reconnaissance

The results indicate that the optical structure of the SPIDER system can be optimized by implementing the pseudo two-layer parity aperture combination method and this provides theoretical support for the further development of theSPIDER system.
