Abstract: Imaging simulations were performed with the filled Mills cross orbiting, imaging, optical interferometer proposed by Synnott et al. (1990) in order to determine its capabilities in the area of spatial resolution, dynamic range, and sensitivity. Astronomical objects have been chosen as candidate program sources to determine whether this interferometer design can accomplish research goals relating to the objects.
