Abstract
Application of photonics in beam forming and steering for phased-array antennas is addressed in this paper. Several photonic beam forming and steering network (BFN) architectures are assessed for their capability and technology feasibility, including the mass, prime power, and volume of the payload feeding a multibeam multi-element phased-array antenna. Trade-off issues in BFN architecture and technology selection processes and critical long lead time technical areas that must be developed before its successful deployment on-board communications satellite have been identified. Results of already demonstrated proof-of-concept schemes are also presented.
