Paper Abstract

The GEO Light Imaging National Testbed (GLINT) system will image objects in geo-synchronous and semi-synchronous orbits using a synthetic aperture technique known as Fourier Telescopy. The testbed will be located in the vicinity of Socorro, New Mexico, and will form one of the most powerful imaging systems on Earth in terms of resolution, with an angular resolution of about 10 nano-radians, or 2 milli-arc seconds. Various parts of the system have strong similarities to astronomical instruments, and these similarities can be exploited to perform long-baseline interferometry, long- baseline intensity interferometry, gamma-ray observation, stellar spectrometry, and remote sensing with unprecedented sensitivities and state-of-the-art resolution.
