C-Band Radar Transponder: 258G

CPI - C Band Transponder 258G

The ultra-miniature, all solid-state, lightweight transponder is designed for use as a tracking radar enhancement device in airborne applications such as missiles, UAVs, and full-size aircraft operating at instrumented ranges.

The current generation of 1 W, 20 W and 50 W C-Band Radar Transponders were designed ten years ago. These have proven to be stable products used in numerous programs. Recent upgrades have increased design robustness. The magnetron based 400 W class product, though, has reached end of life through component obsolescence.

Additional Product Features Include:

  • Single antenna port for receive and transmit
  • Transmit and receive frequencies preset within the 5.4 to 5.9 GHz band
  • Synthesised transmit frequency source
  • Typical Transmitter peak power of 50 W
  • Sensitive receiver, -65 dBm
  • Preset Single or Double pulse Code setting
  • Displacement volume of 140 cm3
  • Typical weight of 280 g
  • Factory set to operate from either 12VDC or 28VDC
