Paper Abstract

A point-to-point fiber optic link capable of transforming microwave signals up to 18 GHz over distances exceeding 20 km is described. This self-contained true time delay line for X-band radar uses indirect modulation to obtain high frequency operation with minimum distortion and noise generation by the optical components. Many of its features can be incorporated into similar systems for airborne operation.
