Fast Fourier Transform Telescope

(FFT Telescope)
(proposed all-digital telescope with synthetic aperture)

Fast Fourier Transform Telescope (FFT Telescope) is the name of a 2008 telescope-concept for a Radio Telescope array to observe 21cm Lines. A regular grid of antennas would collect the signal to be processed in real time using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)-processing to simulate a larger Aperture telescope, a kind of Aperture Synthesis.
