Paper Abstract

A new self-equalizing, RF memory loop based on fiber optic delay lines and MMIC technology is presented. A nested loop configuration is proposed which combines fiber optic delay lines with conventional delay lines, forming an optimal signal storage medium for modern radar deception. Combined with adaptive equalization and RF processing circuity implemented in MMIC, a coherent optical RF memory (CORFM) is constructed. The CORFM provides a much wider instantaneous bandwidth than the digital RF memory and and it is capable of storing time-coincident pulses.
