Paper Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the applications and also several important system issues: insertion loss, noise figure, dynamic range and cost relating to photonics for wideband phased array antennas. This discussion is based on the work that we did on an L-band Optical Control of Phased Array Project funded by DARPA/Rome Lab. The antenna has been delivered to Rome Lab for further demonstration.
