Abstract
In this SBIR program, Morton Photonics will develop a practical phased array radar time delay unit (TDU), incorporating photonic devices for the key functions fabricated in a silicon CMOS compatible process (silicon photonics) to provide for significant scaling of cost with module volume in order to meet the aggressive cost goals of the solicitation. The TDU design will include an optical true-time-delay device developed by Morton Photonics, the key component of the TDU. The silicon photonics approach to fabricate the different devices of the TDU, and the clear road to integration for multiple devices onto a single PIC, makes this path the most likely to reach eventual cost targets, while also producing the smallest, low power and low weight solution to the goals of this solicitation.
