New SSPA is ideal for Defense-related applications, especially Naval shipboard requirements
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teledyne Paradise Datacom (Paradise), part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, is unveiling a new Pulsed Radar SSPA (solid state power amplifier) that is designed for Operators of defense-related tactical radar systems.
For more information, visit Teledyne booth 711 this week at the annual AOC Symposium in Washington, DC.
The solid state technology provides an ideal pathway for customers seeking to upgrade or replace their existing legacy radar platforms with a newer generation of technology, one that delivers superior SWaP, power density, scalability, and performance over a longer life cycle. Additionally, it reduces the risk of complete loss of service for the Operator.
Importantly, the new 4kW X-band SSPA is configurable to meet diverse radar platform requirements, and scalable either up or down to effectively address other power levels as desired. It provides operators of legacy TWT, Magnetron, or Klystron-based platforms with a starting point for upgrades.
This GaN-based SSPA delivers a very high power density that makes it a perfect fit for radar applications deployed for navigation, targeting, and tracking purposes.
“Paradise has a distinguished history developing cutting-edge SSPA technologies, and this advancement is laser-focused on the emerging needs of many OEMs in the defense industry,” said Mike Towner, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for Paradise. “The power levels and frequency band make this SSPA a natural fit for aging pulsed radar application platforms, and its flexibility and scalability are unsurpassed.”
While the 4kW X-band SSPA is ideal for various defense environments, it can also be deployed to address similar user needs in the fields of commercial navigation and weather or air traffic control radar systems.
