Paper Abstract

An overview of towed decoy theory of operation is discussed to develop microwave link requirements. Different fiber optic microwave link approaches including band shifting with wavelength division multiplexing, extenal modulation, and directly modulated lasers are discussed. A military airborne environment is described. Electro-mechanical towline cables are discussed. Future trends for fiber optic microwave links in electronic warfare systems are identified.
