Paper Abstract

Under the Optical Control of Phased Arrays program a fully functional L-band two- dimensional conformal array is being developed. The scope of work includes the development of a wideband radiating element, T/R modules, and a 5-bit photonic time-shift network for beam steering. The photonic time-shifter uses a combination of RF switching, laser switching, fiber starcoupling and photodetector switching to provide the selection of 32 possible delay combinations.
