SATCOM Amplifiers SATCOM Amplifiers
AR has addressed the military SATCOM market with a dedicated SATCOM amplifier the KMW2050 and a multi-band amplifier the KMW2030. Both of these products are JITC certified to be used with military transceivers for UHF SATCOM operation
Wideband 7.5-18 GHz, 300 W TWT Amplifier With Gain Linearization Wideband 7.5-18 GHz, 300 W TWT Amplifier With Gain Linearization
The dB-4410 TWTA (Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier) uses gain linearization to amplify complex waveforms with multiple pulse patterns and bursts, modulation schemes, and counter-jamming capabilities. This makes it ideal for use in radar, ECM, and communication systems. This amplifier features a modular construction, High-Reliability, a wide bandwidth, a very low phase noise, MIL-STD-461E and MIL-STD 704 compliance, and qualification for military airborne environments.
792 To 824 MHz, Rapid Deployment Tower Top Amplifier 792 To 824 MHz, Rapid Deployment Tower Top Amplifier
Designed to enhance the operation of the temporary base station, the Rapid Deployment TTA will increase the receive sensitivity, often in excess of 10 dB, and can make up for the imbalance between mobile and handheld users. Often in emergency situations, any increase in “talk back” range can make the difference in mission critical communications
