Abstract : The purpose of this effort is a study and analysis to explore architectural issues in Optically Controlled Phased Array Radar Systems, based upon progress in high speed, high efficiency, and low noise electro-optic devices and optical interconnections techniques. The aim is providing real time delay control signals for scanning of the radar beam over wide ranges of frequencies, and to simplify the hardware and power consumption at the antenna site.... Phased array radar, Electro-optical devices.
