Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a design for a space borne interferometer with imaging capabilities. Multiple aperture interferometry is a promising technique for high resolution imaging in space. Indeed the use of modular elements based on optical fibers represents an attractive low cost approach compared to very large monolithic mirrors.
