Paper Abstract

A conceptual space-fed architecture is presented that may offer potential advantages over conventional constrained-feed approaches. Fiber or free space optics may be used to control switching functions, distribute signals, achieve beam steering, or injection lock impact avalanche and transmit time (IMPATT) diodes. Fiber optics and monolithic optical technology may reduce weight, size, power, and cost if the high performance required for signal distribution to array elements is achieved.
