Amplifier offers affordable upgrades for EW, radar and SATCOM

9th July 2020 - 17:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Empower has developed a new 90KW C band, liquid-cooled and hot-swappable power amplifier called the RF Systems Model 2225.

The Model 2225 is a long duty cycle pulsed amplifier operating from 5.2-5.9GHz.

According to the manufacturer, the solid-state gallium nitride design replaces tube technology to bring new capabilities to EW, radar, directed energy and SATCOM applications.

A new modern architecture offers scalability for affordable upgrade paths to future power needs by adding hardware to an existing system.

Additional racks can be combined and for racks not fully populated, 2U amplifier drawers can be added without the need for tuning.
