Abstract
We describe the developemnt and antenna range demonstration of a UHF 8-element optically- powered directly modulated fiberoptic manifold. Active laser diode drive circuits are used to increase the laser diode sensitivity and reduce the link noise figure. The manifold operates over the 340-400 MHz band, it consumes low power (55 mA at 4 V per channel), has a two- tone dynamic range of 69 dB/MHz and a noise figure of 2.4 dB.
