GPSoF offers the potential to revolutionize radio antenna applications by eliminating power limitations at the remote end. This will bring significant benefits to aerospace and defense installations.

Power-over-Fiber eliminates power supply limitations by utilizing the available fiber backbones to deliver the required operating voltage to the antenna. This eliminates the need for external power sources at the remote end while integrating all the benefits of fiber into a traditional high frequency link. “Our solution requires less hardware and no copper cables. This accelerates the installation and increases the efficiency in operation, an enormous added value for such applications”, says Dominik Ruckstuhl from Huber+Suhner.

Direct GPSoF has safety features that comply with IEC laser standards. The use of the Q-ODC connector ensures a robust connection with single-mode fibers, enabling connection distances of up to 10 km.
