Leveraging next generation hardware and software innovations that are part of Empower’s “size matters” architecture, several unique configurations of these HPAs are being shipped to key customers. This particular set of high power HPAs build on the size, weight and power advantages already demonstrated with commercial product releases in the broad market, “size matters” product family.

This recent and unique SATCOM solution delivers 2 kW P1dB (CW, digital modulated signal) in L-Band and a companion product delivers 800W P1dB (CW, digital modulated signal) in S-Band.The 2 kW L-Band HPA is a GaN based design and housed in an amazingly small 5U chassis. The Amplifier Control and Power Supply unit is based separately in a 3U chassis.  The 800W S-Band unit is also a GaN based design and self-contained (with power supply) in a 5U chassis.

When tactically deployed, these units are protected from the elements by outdoor enclosures that include environment sensing and control.  The modular design and self contained, transportable enclosures are integral to both the amplifier and end user’s systems design.
