DARPA Launches Research Initiative on Low-Noise, Compact Microwave Oscillator Development; Gordon Keeler Quoted

DARPA

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is exploring advances in non-linear optics and integrated photonics in support of the development of microwave oscillators that potentially meet the compact-size, tuning and robustness requirements while staying in ultra-low-noise level. The fundamental limits of photonic microwave generation will be the focus of the second research area.

NASA Eyes Photonics Usage to Address Spaceflight Challenges

NASA looks to utilize photonics to address what the agency sees as challenges in spaceflight such as data communications from space to Earth, mission payload sizes and altitude measurements from orbit. NASA said Friday it looks to boost space communications for near-Earth and deep-space missions and the space agency has …
