Paper Abstract

The objective of this paper is to describe the progress of a project designed to build on recent photonic capabilities in order to develop an ultra-wide band, true Arbitrary Waveform Generator (AWG) capable of providing radar quality signals in the 500MHz to 20GHz spectrum using photonic integration. Within this scope, it is planned to create a single channel radar environment simulator based on a photonic waveform generator, which will demonstrate the dynamic range, stability, and high signal fidelity required to simulate the modern complex radar environment. The paper will present recent measurements of critical parameters that are vital for the practical realisation of this system on a chip.
