For applications where RF amplification devices are needed but space is limited, Photonis Defense offers Miniature Traveling Wave Tubes to fulfill these requirements. These are long-lasting helix-type tubes that are designed for efficient performance in some of the most severe operating environments. Photonis’ tubes offer superior wide-band performance in a compact package that is suitable for a wide variety of military ground-based or airborne platforms. For greater flexibility in operating conditions, especially where exposure to extremely high temperatures is possible, Photonis’ Miniature Traveling Wave Tubes are conduction-cooled and need no additional cooling source for low temp operation. The Miniature Traveling Wave Tubes are constructed using the industry standard of metal-ceramic and feature rare-earth periodic permanent magnets for accurate focusing without the need for power. These rugged and lightweight devices come in a variety of standard options, but Photonis Defense can also work with you to create a solution perfect for your specific requirement. Our mini TWTs are also integrated into a wide variety of our Microwave Power Modules which a powerful TWT amplifier, a high voltage power supply, and integrated cooling into a compact and lightweight package.
