RF and Microwave Fiber Optic Delay Line Techniques

Delay lines are used for developing, qualifying, and calibrating RADAR systems, Radio Altimeters, Radios, feed-forward amplifiers, telemetry and other systems. Traditional RF and Microwave delay line technology requires long, bulky, electrical transmission lines to delay electrical signals for a precise period of time. Flexible, coaxial cables are commonly used to produce the desired delay.
