ModuMAX GaN SSPA Systems Ku-Band

A revolutionary concept in solid-state power amplifiers, the ModuMAX series eliminates the need for a spare power amplifier or for redundant switchover networks in many satellite earth station applications. ModuMAX SSPAs using Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based amplifiers are completely modular RF amplifier systems offering output power of up to 3 kilowatts in Ku-Band. Patented technology utilizes hot-swappable, plug-in RF modules, power supplies, and electronic assemblies to maximize performance and minimize downtime in SATCOM systems. An advanced interface and control system allows unprecedented remote access and operation.

Model 930A & 950A Control System

The Model 930A and 950A Control Systems can be used with almost any limited motion antenna for precision satellite tracking applications. The systems are comprised of an Antenna Control Unit (ACU), Tracking Receiver Unit (TRU) and a Power Drive Unit (PDU) which are linked via dedicated Ethernet connections. This provides flexibility in locating the key system components, and allows for variable separation distances and provides immunity to electrical ground plane transients.

Modular Block Converter System

Modular Block Converter (MBC) Systems eliminate the downtime and maximize performance and ease-of-repair by providing fully modular systems for up or down conversion. Leveraging patented technology and field-proven architecture, all of the critical system components are hot-swappable without the removal of power and can be removed from the front of the chassis with the exception of the fan assembly.  Our MBC Systems are available in Ku and C-Band.

Ka-Band Low Noise Amplifier

LKKC-20120 Ka-Band Ultra Low Noise Amplifier is specially designed for satellite earth station and other telecommunications applications. Utilizing state-of-the-art HEMT and GaAs MMIC technology, this amplifier has been designed for both fixed and transportable applications. The noise temperature specification is guaranteed over the full bandwidth of the LNA, and measured using a cryogenic hot/cold load test setup.

Man-PAK™ Next Generation Flyaway & Quick Deploy VSAT Terminals

The innovative Man-PAK SATCOM Terminals are lightweight, IATA compliant and pack into one robust case making them easy to transport and allowing them to be checked luggage on a commercial flight. The completely waterproof and rugged design allows for operation in even the most challenging conditions - from war zones to on-the-scene news-gathering. The Man-PAK terminals are available in 0.6m - 1.0m reflector sizes and feature manual or automated satellite acquisition and an award-winning graphical user interface.
