VSATs and RF over Fiber 

The challenge for VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) where the antenna (Dish) and the command center are not collocated has always been the limited reach of the RF cabling.  Using a RF over Fiber link, the distance between the antenna and the operation center can be extended from a few meters to few kilometers without any signal degradation.  The VSAT location / Operating Center often requires building modifications, but using a fiber based VSAT system offers the following benefits:  The…

ORL Reflectance SNR

Attenuation, Reflection, Reflectance, Optical Return Loss (ORL) and Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) Part I: Optical properties utilized by the new Micro-OTDR ORL/SNR Measurement feature. The new ORL/SNR Measurement feature of the Micro-OTDR SFPs measures the optical fiber link ORL during the normal Micro-OTDR start-up “handshaking” routine of the SFPs, before the data link is…

Optical Technology Takes on NCDL Signals

Optical technology provides a reliable solution to waveguide for high-speed data links. The interchange of common-data-link (CDL) signals for communications between different intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems operated by various armed forces and government agencies requires wide bandwidths. And those have traditionally required metal waveguide transmission lines to support bidirectional microwave signals at about…
