Novel applications of fiber optic delay lines to improve the capability and performance of radar repeater and phase noise test sets are described. Using a 2.25 km long fiber optic link, we demonstrated generation of an ideal target for a radar repeater test set and measurement of phase noise closer than 100 Hz to a 9.6 GHz radar carrier signal using a delay line discriminator phase noise test set. FM and AM signal-to-noise measurements were made to determine the performance capability of the 10 GHz modulated fiber optic links for the radar applications.
