Solid state & TWT-based MPMs on display at Paris Air Show
At this year’s International Paris Air Show, TMD Technologies will be showcasing its latest solid state and TWT- (Travelling Wave Tube) based MPMs (Microwave Power Modules), namely the PTS6900 and PTXM devices. The company will be located at stand H170 in hall 2b.
Optimised for EW/ECM systems, the solid state PTS6900 MPMs employ the latest advances in 0.25µm GaN MMIC technology to provide high performance over the 2-6GHz range with an output power of 150W and adjustable 55dB of gain. It provides an instant start up, a fast mute time of 1µs, and is ITAR free, all with a predicted high reliability of over 30,000 hours MTBF.
Operating over the 4.5 to 18GHz band with output powers up to 140W, the PTXM MPMs are extremely compact, making them suitable for UAVs. At the event, TMD Technologies will also display its be instrumentation TWT and solid state amplifiers with applications in the avionics and aerospace industries for radar/EW simulation and training, and EMC HIRF testing.
