Abstract:

AIRCRAFT COMMUNICATIONS AND SPACECRAFT MULTI-ACCESS COMMUNICATIONS REQUIRE HIGH GAIN, CONFORMAL, WIDE FIELD-OF-VIEW (FOV) RECEIVING OPTION WITHOUT BULKY TELESCOPE. E-TEK WILL INVESTIGATE, DESIGN AND COMPARE THREE SOUND APPROACHES: A. CURVED BELT OR DOME OPTICAL PHASED ARRAY USING WAVEFRONT SENSING AND OPTICAL PHASE SHIFTERS; B. CURVED PHASED ARRAY USING ELECTRONIC PROCESSING, AND C. HOLOGRAPHIC FOCUSING ELEMENTS. THE BELT OR DOME ARRAY PROVIDES NUMEROUS ADVANTAGES AND MORE THAN 180 FOV. ONE OR TWO OPTICAL APPROACHES WILL BE SELECTED FOR PHASE II HARDWARE FABRICATION, EVALUATION AND DEMONSTRATION.
