SATCOM Electronic Products

General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies specializes in the design, development, and manufacture of state-of-the-art electronic products for satellite communication operators. We are world leaders in high technology amplifier systems with our modular SSPA family which includes the ModuMAX and QuadMOD models, among others. Our new outdoor SSPBs are the smallest and lightest in the industry. We design and produce high reliability synthesized and block frequency upconverters and downconverters, low noise amplifiers (LNAs), high performance LNBs, high stability reference sources, and other solid-state high power amplifiers (SSPAs) in various redundancy configurations. Please let us know of your custom requirements as we can accommodate most requests.

 

GaN Solid State Power Amplifiers

General Dynamics’ Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based amplifiers are completely modular, offering saturated power from 500 Watts up to 5 kilowatts in Ku-Band.

 

Solid State Power Amplifiers

Solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) consist of multiple transistors in parallel, and naturally contain a degree of built-in redundancy.

 

SSPBs

This compact solid-state power block converter combines an integrated L-band BUC and GaAs IMFET-based output section to provide 25, 35 or 40 watts of saturated power over the standard 14.00–14.50 GHz or extended 13.75–14.5 0 GHz satellite uplink band.

 

Low Noise Amplifiers

Low Noise Amplifiers are specially designed for satellite earth station receiver front ends and other telecommunications applications. Utilizing state-of-the-art HEMT and MMIC technology, these amplifiers have been designed for both fixed and transportable applications.

 

LNBs

Low Noise Block Converters are specially designed for satellite earth station and other telecommunications applications. Utilizing state-of-the-art HEMT and GaAs FET technology, this block converter has been designed for both fixed and transportable applications.

 

Block Converters

The General Dynamics SATCOM Technologies Modular Block Converter (MBC) System eliminates downtime and maximizes performance and ease of repair by providing fully modular systems for up conversion or down conversion.

 

Line Driver Amplifiers

Line Driver Amplifiers (LDAs) are specially designed for use in satellite earth stations and general purpose telecommunications applications. Utilizing proven GaAs FET technology, these amplifiers have been designed for reliable operation in both fixed and transportable applications.

 

Other Satcom Equipment

Various power supply monitors and other system controllers.
