In this chapter the problem of the construction of linear interferometers is considered. We mean the interferometers using the Earth rotation, so-called supersynthesis systems. These systems provide the resolution down to fractions of arcsec required in radio astronomical research of the structure of cosmic sources. Such a resolution is not achievable for single radio telescopes.
