General Dynamics’ Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based amplifiers are completely modular, offering saturated power from 500 Watts up to 5 kilowatts in Ku-Band. Patented technology uses hot-swappable, plug-in RF modules, power supplies, and electronic assemblies to maximize performance in SATCOM systems. A leading-edge software interface provides customer monitoring of amplifier performance along with virtual diagnostic support and service through the interface.

Our advanced technology leads the market in true hot-swappable architecture and is designed for robust applications where 100% uptime is required. The new GaN power amplifiers can increase profitability through its high linearity enhancements. These amplifiers provide outstanding throughput and flexibility for single and multi-carrier operations.
