Research Institution
MagiQ Technologies is proposing a breakthrough approach to co-site antenna interference cancellation using optical signal processing. The method is based on a series of four patents that were developed when working on co-site interference issues on military aircraft. The VHF/UHF band is ideally suited for this application, because the optical components have recently been developed that give the required noise figure (NF), spur-free dynamic range (SFDR), and cancellation performance.
