Abstract
EOSPACE will study the feasibility of using unique Hybrid TTD RF-Photonics modules for performing beam-forming operations in Multi-Beam Phased Array Antenna systems. The architecture utilizes a unique High-Resolution Hybrid True Time Delay module that was developed by EOSPACE for achieving wideband multi-beam operations over wide scan angles. These RF-Photonic modules offer greater performance capabilities, while allowing the fiber optic distribution networks to offer a 2x reduction in size, weight, cross-section, and power consumption in MDA Phased Array Antenna systems, with much less susceptibility to EMI effects.
