Characterizing SSPA Linearity Whitepaper

Perhaps the most important performance parameter for high power amplifiers (HPA) used in SATCOM applications is the ability to amplify signals with minimal added distortion. Distortion is present to some degree in every type of power amplifier, and results from nonlinear amplification as the output level generated by the HPA increases.

This paper describes and defines several key methods for characterizing amplifier nonlinearity, and presents the linear performance capability for General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies’ new generation, GaN-based, 1100W Ku-Band ModuMAX SSPA system based on those methods.

Outdoor Shelters

Outdoor Shelters FOR MODUMAX & QUADMOD HIGH POWER SOLID STATE AMPLIFIERS (SSPA)

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies and Mechantech have partnered to offer new pre-configured and customized shelters to house and support ModuMAX and QuadMod Solid State Amplifiers (SSPA). The new shelters enable our high power amplifiers to be conveniently housed right next to the antenna providing efficient operations and ease of maintenance. The flexibility to position the shelter in close proximity to the antenna requires less waveguide runs and reduces waveguide loss, to enhance operational efficiencies.

Hot-Swappable - Top Gun Amplifiers

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies' ModuMAX high power amplifiers have provided exceptional reliability with the simplest plug-and-play, fully hot-swappable designs available in satellite uplink service for more than 15 years. The patented ModuMAX modular design keeps carriers on the air even during maintenance or module degradation. This remarkable field performance is backed up by hundreds of thousands of hours of operation for many of the world's largest satellite uplinkers. Since the first ModuMAX HPAs were fielded, General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies has worked to take advantage of the best available RF, digital, and semiconductor technology to enhance the already superior ModuMAX performance.
