Abstract
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of a hybrid LIDAR/RADAR receiver. The SA Photonics implementation incorporates a very high gain and low noise photonic detector. SA Photonics will integrate low noise, high dynamic range electronics with the photodetector to provide maximum sensitivity and sensing range. SA Photonics approach also maximizes current advances in digital signal acquisition and digital signal processing to provide high resolution phase accuracy.
