Abstract
SA Photonics’ CORONA architecture is a photonic multi-beam beam former. It supports large phase array size of 40,000 to 400,000 elements with scanning angle of +/- 60 degrees. It supports multi-beam operation of minimum 10 beams with wide frequency range of over 2 octaves covering X band as well as L, S and C bands. The CORONA architecture consists of lasers/optical modulator, dispersive delay layer, 3D MEMS optical switch and band separator/signal combiner.
