Mission Microwave Moves to a Larger Facility to Support their Growth

Mission Microwave manufactures X, Ku and Ka-band solid-state amplifiers and frequency converters to support the leading manufacturers of satellite uplink terminals. The company started in 2014 in Santa Fe Springs and, in 2016 and 2018, doubled its footprint in that facility to approximately 15,000 square feet.

They are now moving to a new facility that again doubles the size of the company’s headquarters and manufacturing facilities to accommodate the dramatic growth being experienced in the company’s Ku and Ka-band amplifier production. The new Mission Microwave facility is located at 6060 Phyllis Drive in Cypress, California.

Mission Microwave’s President and CEO, Francis Auricchio said that their customers and employees have contributed the energy and enthusiasm that have made their growth possible. He further said their new office and manufacturing center brings some well-deserved improvements in efficiency and workflow for their employees. The expanded manufacturing and development facilities will continue their customers’ confidence in their capability to support the increasing demand for their products.

The new facility of more than 31,000 square feet is equipped with ten temperature-controlled test equipment suites capable of automated production testing up to 40 GHz for high power amplifiers, up to 750 watts. The facility has enhanced power distribution and HVAC systems to accommodate the growing volume of deliveries of Mission products that each undergo proprietary burn-in, tuning and testing processes.

The new floor plan layout supports the reliable manufacturing of Mission’s well-known products such as the Cube, Dart, Stinger, Javelin, and Titan BUCs used on tactical SATCOM terminals throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) and critical commercial telecommunications networks. Improvements to the production and testing lines also enhance Mission Microwave’s growing airborne product business including Ku- and Ka-band BUCs and transceivers for UAV’s and for DO-160 qualified terminal partners.
