QuadMod GaAs SSPA Systems

QuadMod SSPAs are completely modular RF amplifier systems that offer output powers of up to 800 watts in C-Band, 700 watts in X-Band, or 400 watts in Ku-Band. Based on patented technology used in our field-proven ModuMAX amplifiers, QuadMod SSPAs utilize hot-swappable RF modules, power supplies and electronic assemblies to maximize performance and minimize downtime in SATCOM systems.

  • Modular Architecture 
  • 3-Year All-inclusive Warranty 
  • Worldwide Service  
  • Proven Reliability  

New Modular Power Supply Conversion Kit

We are pleased to introduce a new power supply configuration for GaAs ModuMAX and QuadMod SSPAs. This new modular power supply (MPS) is the standard for GaAs ModuMAX and QuadMod SSPAs.

In fielded installations, older power supplies that fail may need to be replaced with the latest MPS design because parts for the earlier versions are or will soon become unavailable. Some customers may wish to proactively replace older supplies in fielded installations with the new MPS to modernize their installations and minimize the possibility of future power supply replacement problems. General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies provides conversion kits with detailed instructions to allow customers to retrofit fielded systems with the new MPS. The particular conversion kit required depends on the product type (GaAs ModuMAX or QuadMod) and existing power supply configuration (one or two MPS chassis). General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies’ sales personnel can provide assistance in selecting the appropriate conversion kit.
