    Abstract

    A time-domain simulator tool is described, which has been developed to simulate optical beamforming systems for phased array antennas. A pilot application employing airborne satellite reception of digital video broadcasting is discussed, to which the requirements of the simulator are matched. Results are presented for a linear antenna array with eight antenna elements. The simulator tool can be generalized to other signal processing applications in RF photonics, such as beamforming for radio astronomy or sideband filtering, making it a widely usable simulator.
