RF photonic links that can be used to supplement gigahertz RF electrical transmission lines without the characteristic attenuation, induced noise, and distortion associated with long cable lengths are discussed. Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) capabilites are examined in terms of available wavelengths, hardware, and spacing. Typical RF fiber-optic links at 6-18 GHz are addressed with respect to architecture and electrical and optical characteristics. A global Positioning System (GPS) fiber-optic link is presented.<>
