Mission Microwave Providing BUCs for High Throughput Ka-Band SATCOM Terminals

Intellian, a provider of satellite communications and smart systems for the maritime, industrial, and military sectors has selected Block Up Converters (BUCs) from Mission Microwave for use in its high throughput Ka band mobile terminals for LEO constellations.

Intellian has designed high capacity mobile terminals for the rapidly growing Ka-band HTS (High Throughput Satellite) market and needed to be able to offer high power Ka-band solutions to support wide bandwidths and up to 32-ary advance modulation schemes. Based on Intellian’s prior and on ongoing work with Mission Microwave, the companies have aligned their engineering efforts to create an exceptional product offer for maritime, mobile and LEO/MEO satellite operators.

Mission Microwave is providing a range of Ka and Ku-band Block Up Converters to Intellian with power levels up to 400 watts. Mission’s core capabilities in designing compact and highly efficient amplifiers have enabled Intellian to produce high performance terminals with industry leading efficiency and reliability that are now operating over HTS and LEO networks.

Both companies’ have found a common goal in building a loyal and successful customer base using the most advanced technology available and providing those technologies in a commercial product with a proven long-term value. Intellian’s engineers have a thorough understanding of the requirements for mobile and tracking terminals.

The Mission Microwave products have inspired the industry with their dramatic increases in performance and reliability in an efficient and elegantly designed package. Intellian have found the Mission Microwave BUCs to be an enabling technology to serve the customers better and to expand into new market segments.

The terminal systems provided by Intellian will provide connectivity to new generation networks operating beyond the reach of high capacity terrestrial and traditional satellite services. Intellian’s terminals rely on Mission’s BUCs providing reliable high performance in a compact and efficient package with state-of-the-art monitor and control capabilities to assure terminal performance in a range of challenging environments.

Mission Microwave continues to be at the forefront of the satellite terminal industry in shipping high power Ku and Ka Band BUCs for mobile applications in-ground, maritime and other applications for both government and commercial industry sectors that require high efficiency, reliability and performance. Mission Microwave is exhibiting from September 13-17 at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC 2019) at the RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
