Paper Abstract

Thales Alenia Space has elaborated innovative telecom payload concepts taking benefit from the capabilities of photonics and so-called microwave photonics. The latter consists in transferring RF/microwave signals on optical carriers and performing processing in the optical domain so as to benefit from specific attributes such as wavelength-division multiplexing or switching capabilities.
