MILMEGA wins Queen’s Award for Innovation 2012
MILMEGA Ltd has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for developing amplifiers, based on a novel design methodology, using gallium nitride-based transistors, for use in Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) test equipment.
The prestigious Award is presented to businesses in the UK to recognise outstanding innovative achievements relative to their operational size. To win the Award, MILMEGA Ltd was required to demonstrate continuous innovation and development over a period of five years resulting in substantial improvement in the performance of the Company. In addition the Award is only made to organisations that can demonstrate a high level of corporate responsibility.
Pat Moore, MD said, “One of our key differentiators in our target markets is daring to be different while maintaining a reputation for exceptional quality and customer service. A Queen’s Award is a benchmark aspired to by many and our customers will share the pride we feel in having been selected to receive this internationally prestigious mark of excellence.”
MILMEGA’s products cover frequency ranges from 80 MHz to 8 GHz with powers up to 1 kW, which are used throughout the world in EMC testing, defence, communications and high-energy physics. The innovative, modular amplifier design, which uses the latest GaN transistor technology, provides the amplifiers with a number of advantages including, high power density, ease of maintenance and repair, superior reliability and the ability to upgrade in both power and frequency. These features make MILMEGA amplifiers particularly attractive to the replacement market as well as emerging markets in India, South America and the Far East.
Graeme Goodall, FD said “The Company and staff are very proud and honoured to have received this Award which recognises our sustained success in designing and manufacturing highly innovative, market leading, quality amplifier products for the EMC industry.
