Abstract
A fiber optic distribution system for phased array antennas containing optical amplifiers is analyzed. The position of the optical amplifier layers inside the distribution network is investigated in terms of microwave insertion loss and signal-to-noise ratio. The proposed solution uses one layer of optical amplifiers to feed several hundred (> 500) T/R modules of a phased array antenna. The output signal-to-noise ratio is 120 dB/Hz which exceeds the required specification.
