ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase II effort is a two year program focused on demonstrating both the feasibility of an integrated semiconductor optical thresholder and its ability to enable a high frequency Optical Analog to Digital Converter (OADC). Such OADCs would dramatically enhance capability in multiple Air Force platforms. BENEFIT: The integrated optical thresholder technology would permit processing of the RF spectrum at the antenna and allow lighter data cables to be used in the platform. These benefits would be realized by many platforms, like the F-35.
