Abstract

EOSPACE will study the development of a Linearized Wideband Fiber Optic Transmitter for use in High Dynamic Range Analog Fiber Optic Links. The transmitter will consists of a unique EOSPACE wideband, linearized modulator integrated with a high power CW laser. A new packaging approach will offer record performance capabilities, while allowing fiber optic distribution networks to offer a twofold reduction in size, weight, cross-section, and power consumption in Navy Aerospace systems, with much less susceptibility to EMI effects.
