Usachev – Ph.D. (Eng.), Head of Department, Bauman Moscow State Technical University I. A. Sokolov – Ph.D. (Eng.), General Director of AO “NIIMP” (Zelenograd) S. V. Yagolnikov – Dr.Sc. (Eng.), Head of NIC 2 CNII 4

In the article the application features, advantages and characteristics of elements of fiber optics, optoelectronics and integrated optics for use in ultra-wideband radars have been reviewed. It has been noted that adoption of radio photonics technologies and element base into practice of development and creation of ultra-wideband radars based on phased array antennas and active phased array antennas al-lows providing significantly better specifications than when applying traditional solutions.
