Paper Abstract

Presented in this paper is an overview of the development of a wideband photonic array antenna. The presentation will focus on the performance of a unique L-band 24 X 4 element conformal array, supported by a photonic true-time-delay beamforming network. A 2-ns pulse was injected into the system and the round trip impulse response was measured to demonstrate the array's 550 MHz instantaneous bandwidth.
