We propose a non-invasive bunch length measurement system based on RF pickup interferometry. A device performs interferometry between two broadband wake signals generated by a single short particle bunch. The mentioned wakes are excited by two consequent small gaps in beam channel. A field pattern formed by interference of the mentioned two coherent wake signals is registered by means of detector arrays placed at outer side of beam channel. The detectors are assumed to be low-cost integrating detectors (pyro-detectors or bolometers) so that integration time is assumed to be much bigger than bunch length. Because RF signals come from gaps to any detector with different time delays which depend on particular detector coordinate, the array allows to substitute measurements in time by measurements in space. Simulations with a 1 ps beam and a set of two 200 micron wide vacuum breaks separated by 0.5 mm were done using CST Particle Studio. These simulations show good accuracy. Moreover, one can recover the detailed temporal structure of the measured pulse using a new developed synthesis procedure.
