The use of photonics for phased-array applications has been discussed for quite some time. The main difficulties up to now have been the component count and cost of relatively complex systems. The advances in photonic integration are very promising for bringing down both, as well as reducing volume and weight of phased-array beamforming networks as compared to their electrical counterparts. In addition, photonics allows for increased functionality for wide-bandwidth systems. This paper reports on these advances and indicates a strategy applicable to photonic phased-arrays
