Mission Microwave supplying high-power X-, Ku- & Ka-band BUCs worth over $12m for SATCOM terminals

Mission Microwave Technologies LLC of Santa Fe Springs, CA, USA, which manufactures gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs) and block up-converters (BUCs), has received orders from multiple government contractors to provide X-, Ku- and Ka-band block upconverters as components of complex SATCOM terminals in support of the warfighter. The combined value of the orders was over $12m in first-quarter 2019.

“Mission Microwave’s value proposition of smaller, lighter and more efficient high-power amplifiers is enabling our customers to create highly portable, higher-throughput terminals with lower power consumption than previous options,” says president & CEO Francis Auricchio. “Our customers rigorously evaluated our products and chose Mission Microwave to support their customers’ demanding requirements for reliability, performance and delivery.”

Mission’s Stinger, Javelin and Titan products have been designed into families of terminals across X-, Ku- and Ka-band frequencies. Their common form factor and interfaces allow designers to create flexible platforms, eliminating the need to re-engineer the implementation when missions change.

The products delivered by Mission Microwave for these programs include high-performance commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) amplifiers for X-, Ku- and Ka-band terminals. They rely on Mission’s patented GaN amplifier and BUC designs to support customers operating in harsh environments while reducing the size, weight and power (SWaP) burden on the remote users. Mission Microwave has supplied the satellite terminal industry by shipping high power X, Ku and Ka-band amplifiers and BUCs for mobile applications in ground, maritime and other applications in both government and commercial industry sectors that require reliability, performance and efficiency.
