Abstract

We present a method and devices for highly resolved carrier and information extraction of optically modulated radar signals. The extraction is done by passing the optical beam through a monitoring path that constitutes a finite impulse response filter. Replications of the monitoring signal realize the required spectral scan of the filter. Despite the fact that the filter configuration is fixed, each replication experiences different spectral filtering. The radar carrier is detected by observing the energy fluctuations in a low-rate output detector. The RF information is extracted by positioning a low-rate tunable filter at the detected carrier frequency.
