We shall discuss here some of the problems involved in using an interferometer to make measurements on a CW signal in multiray conditions. Performance now depends on factors such as the exact sequence of operations, the speed with which it is carried out, the number of times it is repeated to obtain a time average, and the methods used to resolve ambiguities and to combine observations from separate arms. The optimum combination of processor and array configuration is by no means clear, and a full discussion of all possible permutations is beyond the scope of this book. All that will be attempted here is an introduction to the types of calculations that are needed in the interpretation of observations and the analysis of accuracy.
