Paper Abstract

A new space-qualifiable, radiation-hard, ultra-lightweight, high-performance, and hermetic microwave optical link receiver has been developed to meet the demanding requirements of communications spacecraft payload interconnects. This microwave optical link receiver incorporates a small, simple package with space flight proven assembly processes and electro-optical components to provide a lightweight (2.6 grams) interconnect package. Device requirements and hardware development results are presented.
