Paper Abstract

We report the first implementation of fiber optics at 11 GHz in an experimental satellite communication EHF/SHF research terminal for airborne applications. Signal-to-noise and bit-error-rate were measured to characterize the system after a 100-m-long fiber optic link replaced a 4 ft long coaxial cable to enable X-band signal remoting.
