Paper Abstract

The Defense Critical Technologies Plan (DCTP) submitted to Congress has for several years listed photonics as one of the highest priority technologies within the DoD. Currently, several photonic architectures are being considered for space applications. As a demonstration of the functionality of photonics for DoD space applications, some photonic devices will be flown on the Microelectronics and Photonics Test Bed (MPTB) space experiment. The MPTB is planned to be an innovative space demonstration of new and emerging electronic and photonic technologies. This paper discusses possible photonics technology candidates for the MPTB mission. In particular, an optical spectrum analyzer experiment is presented as one such candidate.
