Abstract : A method is described by which adaptive beamforming can be accomplished in transmit mode with a photonic true time delay beamformer. Performance predictions for a radar line array using this beamformer are also presented. Possible configurations for a photonic true time delay beamformer in the receive mode are also discussed. Particular attention is paid to the possibilities for broadband/frequency agile closed-loop adaptive beamforming using a photonic receiver.
