Abstract
Our baseline incorporates a unique photonic approach. a)Photonic sampler antenna with unparalleled features: low EMI and EMP inherent in optical fiber, b) conformal elements fed by optical fiber resulting in easy S/C integration, c) photonic beamforming network for millisecond rate direction finding, d) very low footprint photonic receiver with embedded signal processing. Unified photonics systems concept resulting in low mass and low cost. Low risk- all elements of system have been demonstrated. Supported by Lockheed Martin, which is separately investing in situational awareness systems and in particular in photonic antenna systems. (see attached letter)
