Abstract
Two technologies which are potential candidates for distributing control and intelligence information in large phased array antennas, are space feeding and fiber optic corporate feeding. A comparison of the two technologies is presented in both qualitative and quantitative form. The comparison is embodied in the hypothetical cases of a V-band and an L-band spaceborne imaging radar. Size, weight, power and performance impacts of the two feeding methods are contrasted.
