Abstract:

WDM techniques as enablers for complex military systems. Optical bandwidth is the key that unlocks the potential of photonics in military RF systems - low transmission loss of fiber does not carry the same weight as for commercial systems. Archetype Large-scale phased-array antennas Challenge Receive-mode signal combining Solutions Careful optical and RF subsystem design Prudent use of existing WDM technology Technology developments
