Advantech Wireless has received  follow up orders from Military Customers for the firm's X-band line of Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology based Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) and Block Up Converters (BUCs) designed for Tactical Mobile Military Applications.

This latest generation of X-band GaN based SSPAs/BUCs from Advantech Wireless feature exceptional linearity and operating efficiency. These advanced systems are extremely versatile and perfectly suited for harsh environments, Satcom on the Move (SOTM) and man-pack terminal deployments.

The X-band GaN based BUCs from Advantech Wireless are weatherproof and constructed in a compact cooling enclosure for outdoor operation. Based on ruggedized designs these BUCs are the smallest fully integrated units on the market today and are enabling new terminal designs for both mobile and on the halt tactical communication systems.
