Paper Abstract

The acousto-optic (AO) module described in this paper is an in-line, time- integrating correlator architecture that detects and analyzes inherently wide bandwidth signals in a small and lightweight package. The correlator processes a 500 MHz instantaneous bandwidth to provide enhanced detection capability for broadband signals. The existing electronic support measures (ESM) testbed processes a wide bandwidth but can only detect the presence of narrowband signals. This paper will describe the AO correlator design and the radio frequency and digital interface required for the insertion into the ESM testbed.
