Abstract
The proposed technology has the potential to provide an innovative system design for providing optical distribution of RF and digital signals about U.S. submarines. The approach presented in this proposal addresses limitations of current commercially available approaches and serves to reduce the size, weight and power requirements of existing copper-based solutions. In this proposal, 3 Phoenix, Inc. (3Pi) will present an approach to mast consolidation and bandwidth enhancement through the application of unique RF over fiber techniques combined with passive optical networking architectures. 3Pi has a history of being successful in transitioning leading edge technology to defense applications. We anticipate that the results of this effort will demonstrate the feasibility of the system approach and the path to implementation.
