Paper Abstract

The Artificial Long Delay Optical Processor (ALDOP) generates a large variable delay of a band limited pulse modulated RF signal. The proposed prototype ALDOP has potential use in a Passive Radio Ranging (PRR) system operating in the 82.5 - 97.5 MHz frequency band. The complete system will combine a passive electronic band pass filter with the optically based ALDOP to impart a unique phase shift to each frequency component of an incoming RF signal. The phase shift is generated using optical heterodyne methods that incorporate the transmission and modulation of light through a series of optical components including an acousto-optical cell and a Fresnel Zone Plate.
