BUCs + TWTAs Heading To European Integrator From CPI Satcom Products

[Satnews] The Satcom Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) has been awarded a contract in excess of $700,000 from a major European integrator and systems provider for a combination of CPI Traveling Wave Tube amplifiers (TWTAs) and Klystron Power Amplifiers (KPAs).

These amplifiers will be used to support transcontinental broadcasting and data transfer applications.

This award is notable for the system’s reliance on multiple types of CPI amplifiers, including hub-mount TWTAs, rack-mount TWTAs and rack-mount klystron power amplifiers.  CPI’s ability to provide multiple technologies, along with its industry leading global support network, was important in its selection as the amplifier supplier for this system.

CPI is the one of the largest manufacturers of a wide range of high power communications amplifiers, including TWTAs, solid state power amplifiers (SSPAs, often also referred to as BUCs) and KPAs.  These amplifiers, which operate in frequencies from S-band to V-band, are used around the world in fixed and mobile gateways for both military and commercial applications.  CPI’s satellite communications products are supported by more than 20 service centers around the world.
