Low Phase Noise Photonic Oscillators
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Visidyne proposes to demonstrate that photonics: diode lasers, optical delay lines and detector/receivers can be used to design RF oscillators, e.g., at X-band, with less phase noise in a smaller footprint and at lower power consumption than existing,all electronic designs. Low phase noise oscillators are an important element in advanced missile receivers to improve on target, Doppler discrimination and to reduce background clutter. Low phase noise, low drift clock oscillators are critical items inGPS receivers to reduce code acquisition times. Also for advanced digital intercept receiver, that are part of electronic warfare suits.
