Spotlight On Military, Defense, & Aerospace Solutions
Booster Amplifiers Maximize Warfighter Situational Awareness

Booster amplifiers, used in support or in place of other technologies, are a cost-effective, SWaP-conscious, and field-proven tool to extend radio communications ranges in tactical situations.

Improving The Capabilities Of Cognitive Radar & EW Systems

This application note addresses the challenges that mode-agile or wartime reserve mode (WARM) radar and electromagnetic warfare (EW) threat emitters pose, as well as the architecture of cognitive artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) systems and how they deliver effective RF countermeasures.

Modular Designs For Custom RF/Microwave Components And Assemblies

Organizations in need of RF/microwave components and microwave subsystems often have difficulty identifying standard catalog solutions that will perform optimally, or even fit adequately, within their systems.

Understanding The Nuances Of Space-Level Filter Qualification And Screening

High-quality, reliable electronic components are a necessity for space applications. After all, when launching mission-critical equipment and people into space, there is absolutely no room for failure. 

Next-Generation Military Communications Challenges

Military communications (MILCOM) have been the backbone for deployed soldiers since the Vietnam War. While these units have proven their capability and security for decades, the next generation of MILCOM platforms will need to leverage more modern communication technologies.

Industry Insights
Using A Hybrid Coupler In A Microwave Or RF Amplifier Test Setup

Hybrid couplers perform many functions, including splitting and combining signals in amplifiers, switching circuits, and enabling antenna beam-forming networks in applications where power or frequency need to be monitored, leveled, alarmed, and/or controlled.

Conducted Immunity Test System For BCI And TWC Methods

This application note specifically gives a description of a conducted immunity (CI) system configuration with AR’s RF amplifiers that will satisfy many standards’ conducted immunity requirements over a range of 10 kHz to 3 GHz and can generate levels up to 500 mA.

Ground Mobile/Fixed Site ELINT/ESM System: MFEL-5000 GSN

Survivability in any modern conflict will depend on the operational capability of a military to conduct operations in the face of a complex and fast changing electromagnetic environment (EME). The D-TA MFEL-5000 GSN ELINT system delivers timely and integrated ELINT data to ensure mission effectiveness.
