Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the work in progress at Lockheed Electronics Company in the area of acousto-optic processors for adaptive antenna arrays. The work encompasses both theoretical and hardware implementation of such processors. For demonstration of the basic concept, an optical/electronic brassboard has been built and tested. The system, consisting of a 2-element array with one user and one jamming signal, has been shown to achieve almost 25 dB of nulls in less than 3 microseconds for signals in the L-band.
