Interferometric aperture synthesis imaging technology, initially developed for radio astronomy in the 1980s [4,5], can well solve the contradiction between the antenna aperture and spatial resolution.
As a cost-effective technique with high imaging resolution, aperture synthesis imaging would be extensively used in near-field applications.
