Abstract

Optical fiber provides a high bandwidth, low loss link solution for long cable runs connecting antennas and RF signal sources with receivers. Long electrical cable runs result in significant attenuation in the higher frequency (Ku and certainly in Ka) bands, as opposed to virtually no transmission loss with optical fiber. Other advantages are smaller diameter and better flexibility with  fiber optic cables for easier installation in confined spaces, such as on aircraft and other vehicles, higher capacity, and reduced size and weight for weight-sensitive applications in aerospace platforms.
