Mission Microwave Technologies, Inc. showcased their new lines of Ku- and Ka-band Solid State Power Amplifier BUC at the recent satellite show in Washington DC.

The new Javelin product line delivers either 100W at Ku-band or 50W at Ka-band and features a common form factor and connections for terminal interchangeability. The Stinger product line delivers 55W at Ku-Band while measuring only 9 x 3.5 x 3.5-inches. Mission Microwave’s BUCs provide high reliability even in the most demanding applications and extreme environments. In addition, the Ku-band BUCs offer selectable standard and extended frequency bands with no performance degradation. The Stinger and Javelin products offer multiple interface options, including RS232, RS485, Ethernet, and wireless Bluetooth, complete with a simple-to-use app interface for iOS.

“We were pleased to introduce these revolutionary products to the commercial and military satellite communications communities. They are ideal for SNG applications, as well as communications on-the-move, on-the-pause, and terrestrial airborne connectivity, or anywhere that size and performance really matters” said Francis Auricchio, President and CEO of Mission Microwave. “Our Javelin products provide groundbreaking efficiency, drawing only 450W to deliver 100W at Ku-Band and only 264W to deliver 50W at Ka-Band, significantly less than other products on the market. They are small enough to mount directly on an antenna boom, weighing in at only 11 pounds. Additionally, our Stinger BUC delivers 55W at Ku-Band, measures 9” x 3.5” x 3.5”, and weighs in at just five pounds. This is a step-change in the industry, in terms of reliable, compact solid state power amplification.”
