Abstract
The development of an optical based RF architecture will benefit modern avionics, collection, and radar systems. Work to date in this field has led to the development of the current transmission line components (mach zehnder modulators, optical detectors, and fiber optic line), but the performance of these approaches is less than stellar. What is needed is a roadmap to develop optical components that can work together to replace entire systems with more functionality for the size, weight, and cost of typical RF approaches.
