Abstract
An optical system is described which provides a set of microwave signals to be applied to elements in a phased array employing solid state TR modules. The set is globally controlled by two sinusoids to permit beam formation in the 2D angle space of the antenna for both transmission and reception. Experimental results are shown. The basic conceptual design is described in terms of lightwave components which is extended to monopulse beam formation and wideband waveform beam steering which counteracts the intrinsic dispersion of arrays.
