Description

Photonis Defense combines their knowledge of vacuum technology with the modern solid-state components to build compact, integrated Microwave Power Modules for amplifying radio frequency signals to high power levels in military and commercial applications. Their design consists of a high gain solid-state driver (MMIC) followed by a multi-collector traveling wave tube, and their associated power supplies, into a powerful lightweight amplifier. Photonis’ Microwave Power Modules meet the power, bandwidth, and spectral requirements of many modern microwave systems as used in electronic countermeasures, point to point and Satcom data links, and radar systems. These systems are also ideally suited for airborne applications where volume, weight and prime power are at a premium.  For research applications, Photonis’ Microwave Power Modules can also be used as compact laboratory amplifiers. By harnessing the power of a high-efficiency miniature traveling wave tube, Photonis’ microwave power modules have a proven track record of being efficient, low noise amplifiers with a low SWaP design. The technical chart above details some of Photonis’ standard Microwave Power Module units, however, if you have a specific requirement please contact us and we will work with you to create a customized solution. Photonis also offers Linearized Microwave Power Modules.
