Mission Microwave Completes Testing of 200 Watt Ka-Band Solid State Power Amplifiers

Mission Microwave Technologies has announced that it has completed the initial testing of its 200 Watt Ka Band (30 GHz) Gallium Nitride (GaN) based products for a U.S. based technology integrator.

Mission Microwave is providing individual amplifiers and redundant systems based on its Titan Ka Band BUC. Both Ku-Band and Ka Band systems are being delivered to support mobile SATCOM deployable systems. The 200 Watt Ka band Titan BUC produces over 100 watts of linear Radio Frequency (RF) power in a 10 kg package to support mission critical communications while the Ku band configuration delivers 200 watts of linear Ku band RF power.

Tactical and commercial customers and their end-users can expect to benefit from continued releases of new Mission Microwave RF products as leading satellite communications systems suppliers incorporate them in their designs for X, Ku and Ka band uplinks for commercial and MILSATCOM applications. As with every Mission Microwave product, these GaN based Ka and Ku band BUCs are based on a family of proprietary components and design elements that ensure the products are predictable and reliable in their manufacture, operation and support.
