COTS Modular Microwave Amplifiers for NewSpace Missions

NewSpace refers to the emergence of a private space industry heavily focused on quicker delivery times and optimized costs. With a new approach to the design and manufacturing of space-based systems, platforms, and payloads, NewSpace
can reduce the amount of analysis and design iterations, eliminate overheads and bureaucracy, use industrial techniques like serial production, and maximize the use of Components of the Shelf (COTS) instead of developing/qualifying every single part.

In this paper, we review the main technical points that make a COTS Microwave Modular Amplifier suitable for NewSpace missions, and take a closer look at the changes or modifications that might be recommended, depending on the type of mission. We also include a summary of ERZIA COTS used in NewSpace missions.
