Abstract
Not Available TACAN proposes a novel low voltage, low cost, high performance 130 GHz continuous bandwidth EO modulator architecture that uses a balanced two section modulator, one for input RF up to 65 GHz, and the other section for 65 -130 GHz, using currently available V connectors and no metal waveguides. We further propose to fabricate two such external laser modulators to integrate into a dual-parallel laser modulator with extraordinarily large dynamic range. These antenna remoting links in the 44-100 GHz frequency range will use fiber optic transmission facilities that must handle microwave carrier-based digital modulation schemes requiring very high modulator linearity to minimize the interference that results from spectral regrowth. Use of a single laser and high dynamic range electrooptic modulator capable of covering the entire spectrum to 130 GHz rather than multiple laser and modulators that cover a fraction of the frequency range will greatly lower the cost for such applications. Very important immediate application of low cost to manufacture RF photonic laser modulators include remoting of antennas for cellular and micro-cellular radio systems for use in military and commercial applications, all of which are part of TACAN'' present and continuing marketing and sales agenda. Of particular commercial interest are space-based and airborne platforms such as true time delay beam formation and beam steering subsystems in phased array antennas. We are also now developing and marketing antenna downlinks from L-Band through Ka-band up to 47 GHz.
