An acousto-optic phased array antenna beamformer with independent phase and carrier control capability is experimentally demonstrated using single-sideband signals driving two acousto-optic devices. A dynamic range of 66.6 dB @+2 MHz and carrier-to-noise of 126.9 dBIHz @+2 MHz is measured. This beamformer has wide antenna tunable bandwidth and intrapulse beamforming capabilities.
