Advanced wavelength switched terabit optical router for Space Networks
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Freedom Photonics' technical approach to building a terabit optical router for space applications will be to design the router architecture to maximize the functionality of the components that are indispensable for an optical satellite network operation, while adding additional photonic and electronic blocks to expand the routing functionality to a necessary level. To meet the size, weight and power requirements, we propose to utilize highly integrated photonic components which form the core of our technology. BENEFIT: 1000x increase in available bandwidth, with 50% volume, weight and power consumption. Significant commercial market in fiber optic transport systems of the next generation.
