TMD Technologies,, Baltimore, Maryland (TMD US), a supplier of high-power microwave and RF transmitter products, has significantly expanded its Service and Repair facility in response to increased demand for technical support services. This development is a direct response to recent new maintenance requirements from the US Military customers to service and support their transmitter/amplifier products, including TWT-based amplifier diagnostics, component level upgrades, and sub-system repairs.
Mike Farley, CEO at TMD US said that as the US military continues to upgrade the radar and EW platforms to extend system life, technical product support, maintenance, and repair have become increasingly important. At TMD US, they have addressed this critical requirement head-on, and have invested in the human resources and capital equipment needed to strengthen their capacity to expand this growing aspect of their business. He further mentioned that at their recently up-graded Service Center in Baltimore, Maryland, high-power airborne, ground-based and shipboard transmitter systems for radar and EW/ECM/EA applications undergo a full evaluation, performance upgrades and, if needed, repairs. Also, their impressive turn-around time on these activities provides an essential advantage to their customers in the form of reduced system downtime.
To meet these demanding requirements, all relevant technical certifications are monitored and fulfilled at the TMD US Service Center, with strict adherence to current standards. Test engineers are factory trained and accredited by TMD at its advanced manufacturing establishment in the UK. As such, TMD’s customers can confidently entrust the company with the repair of their TWTAs (Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers), ruggedized amplifiers, and MPMs (Microwave Power Modules) currently in use on active military programs.
At TMD US, the growth of its Service Center has become a strategic imperative to bring further technical support to its US military and prime contractor customers.
