The Olympus Line of SSPAs Introduced by Advantech Wireless Technologies

New from Advantech Wireless Technologies are the firm's ‘Olympus’ Line of high power Solid State Power Amplifier systems — these terminals are installation-ready, tested and shipped on a one-piece, welded mounting-frame.

The Olympus terminals from Advantech Wireless Technologies.

Delivered as factory-integrated systems up to 1.8kW in C-, X- or Ku-band, the Olympus systems are based on Advantech SapphireBlu Series high-power SSPAs and are designed for high-modulation, single and multi-carrier uplink applications.

The four terminal types include redundant and phase-combined-redundant system configurations, designed to deliver the highest level of RF output-power in a neatly packaged assembly.

  • Type-1: One on-line Amplifier with dedicated back-up (Single Pol)
  • Type-2: Two on-line amplifiers phase-combined (Single-Pol)
  • Type-3: Two on-line amplifiers with dedicated back-up (Dual-Pol)
  • Type-4: Two on-line amplifiers phase-combined with dedicated back-up (Single Pol)


Tony Radford, VP Global Sales at Advantech Wireless Technologies, said that the company has a legacy of producing the highest power SATCOM SSPAs in the industry. In order to facilitate the increasing demand for high-power, the company has created a number of factory-integrated ‘packages’ to help expedite both the sales and production processes.
