Abstract
The original objectives of the Smart Skins technology program are reviewed, illustrating the proposed evolution of phased array antennas over the next three decades. In describing this program, particular emphasis is given to antenna performance capabilities, RF feeding, and beamforming. Various beamforming techniques employing phase shifters and optical fiber true time delays are examined. Other aspects of Smart Skin arrays to which optical technologies may apply are reviewed and current technical limitations are addressed.
