Paper Abstract

A simple acousto-optic system is described that is capable of demodulating frequency and phase-modulated signals using a bicell photodetector. The performance of the system is modeled showing that, by taking the sum and difference of the outputs from the two bicell elements, it is possible to identify and demodulate a wide range of different types of modulation without any a priori information. Thus the technique is well suited for surveillance receiver and ESM applications. In particular it is shown that BPSK, QPSK, offset keyed QPSK, differential QPSK, continuous phase FSK (including MSK) and ordinary FSK all give unique and easily identifiable signatures. Some preliminary experimental results are presented, which are in good agreement with the modeled results.
