Mission Microwave Technologies, LLC, a manufacturer of highly efficient Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) and Block Up Converters (BUCs), has announced the availability of their MOAB 400 Watt Ku-Band SSPA/BUC.
The MOAB continues the tradition established by the Stinger, Javelin and Titan products while having the smallest possible size, weight, and power envelope.
Ideal for gateway and broadcast applications, the 400 Watt Ku-band MOAB weighs in at 35 lbs. and draws only 1300 Watts of prime power to produce 200 Watts of linear power in a ruggedized outdoor package. The unit is an ideal replacement for less rugged and reliable options such as TWTAs. Along with the Titan, Javelin and Stinger products in X-, Ku- and Ka-bands up to 200 Watts, Mission Microwave offers complete redundancy solutions including redundancy controllers and a state of the art Monitor and Control (M&C) interface using SNMP V3.
The Mission Microwave team will be showing the MOAB, along with their entire range of X-, Ku- and Ka-band products, at Satellite 2018 in Washington, DC, March 13-15 in booth number 1225 in the center of the exhibition hall.
Steve Richeson, Mission Microwave’s VP of Sales and Marketing, said that the MOAB 400 Watt Ku-band BUC is the company's first high power building block and is small, light and rugged enough for mobile applications, while also bringing benefits in ease of installation and power efficiency to fixed broadcast and gateway sites.
