Abstract

We describe the design, fabrication, testing, and antenna-range demonstration of a photonic wavelength-multiplexed true-time-delay steering system for use with broadband phased-array antennas. The prototype system is based on a unique hardware-compressive architecture and can drive 16 antenna elements over the 0.35–2.1-GHz band with 6-bit angular resolution over a ±45° scan angle.
