Abstract : Meetings between Dr. Riza and the ONR program monitor discussed and remedied slow invoicing by UCF. Dr. Riza has initiated revised and specific tasks for Lockheed-Martin Govt. Electronic Systems Div. Moorestown, New Jersey. The first, a meetings will be set up for Dr. Miceli (ONR) and Dr. Riza to look at the RF Photonics related to the Aegis radar. The second deals with generation of a technical and cost plan for showing modifications work required for testing the CREOL photonic system with an LM antenna array. On the technical side, we have recently completed the first basic system test for the CREOL photonic controller, with positive and encouraging test numbers. Future technical work includes reducing the FLC devices insertion losses, improving output freespace-to-GRIM lens optical coupling efficiency, and replacing the five non-AR coated optical components in our present laboratory PDL with AR coated components. Future work also includes tabulating and listing the basic Aegis requirements related to the photonic beamformer.
