Paper Abstract

This paper presents functional architectures providing transmission link, and beamforming for multiple element microwave antennas. System performance parameters including dynamic range and bandwidth are considered from the standpoint of electrooptical component performance. Measured performance of direct modulated semiconductor laser sources, link subsystems, and a three-bit fiber-optic time-delay network are presented.
