Abstract:

SA Photonics is pleased to propose a program to develop an electromagnetic threat warning sensor. The innovative electro-optic high power microwave sensor boosts 10x sensitivity compared to standard LiNbO3 sensors and has extremely high damage threshold. The sensor system consists of a series of multi-electrode array probes, wideband optical pickup circuitry and a sophisticated digital processing unit. A fiber optic link between the sensors and the pickup circuitry/processing unit allows the placement of the electronics at heavily shielded environment to for enhanced reliability. The sensor array not only ensures low false alarm rate but also provides angle of arrival estimation of the incoming electromagnetic threats.
