Not Available IFOS proposes to develop novel photonic signal-processing subsystems to replace certain electronic signal-processing functions presently limiting many sophisticated systems such as radar. Using photonics for signal processing and computing holds promise for ultra-high bandwidth and speed, immunity to electromagnetic interference and crosstalk, freedom from impedance-matching problems, higher interconnect density and lower cost compared with their electronic counterparts. The proposed ultra-fast photonic processors are a first-time implementation with wavelength-division-multiplexed fiber-optic circuits in architectural configurations known as ¿systolic¿ which are well-suited to our goal. Systolic processing provides a pipelined means for implementation of linear algebra, crucial in many signal-processing functions including those in radars. Because of increasing need for ultra-fast processors and recent advances in optical-fiber gratings, couplers and amplifiers, the time is ripe to move photonic systolic processing toward commercialization. The IFOS team is in a unique position to do this because of (a) its pioneering history in the subject, and (b) its recent related device technology advancements. In Phase I, IFOS will simulate, analyze, fabricate and test an expandable photonic systolic processor comprising three proprietary processing elements. Radar, which has very essential military and civilian applications, will be employed as a platform to demonstrate the IFOS signal processing technology
