Paper Abstract

The steady evolution of and increased requirement for using photonic technologies within the commercial market coupled with decreased defense spending has brought forth new national philosophies regarding widespread use of the technology in both military and commercial sectors. Many commercially available photonic components (i.e., optical fibers, laser diodes, semiconductor detectors, detector arrays, spatial light modulators, integrated optic circuitry and other similar optoelectronic and electro-optic devices are being scrutinized for utility, cost effectiveness and dual-use in a variety of applications. One important area of application is space. This paper will discuss the current state-of-the-art and utility of qualifying and using several mature photonic component technologies in commercial and defense application areas.
