General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded a $25.4 million full-production contract from Lockheed Martinto support the U.S. Air Force Global Positioning System (GPS) III Network Communications Element (NCE) for space vehicles seven and eight (SV 07-08).
Crane Aerospace & Electronics Microwave Solution launches the new ku-band 4-way Iso-Divider designed for use in satellite applications. This unit represents a further expansion of the products available in this product line. The Iso-Divider combines the functions of high performance power dividers with ferrite isolators to provide a high isolation power divider solution, making the external isolators redundant, for satellite receiver applications, without introducing complex switch-based solutions.
Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a business unit within the Vitec Group's videocom division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems for MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, highlights its new Briefcase Receiver (BCRx) at AUVSI 2014, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International's Annual North American Symposium and Exposition (Booth 1045).
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced that GIT Japan Inc., a provider of advanced interface technologies between people and information, and a competence center for ultrawideband (UWB) chipset and module development, has selected Agilent EEsof EDA’s Advanced Design System (ADS) electronic design automation platform for complete GaAs/GaN- and silicon-based RFIC/MMIC implementations.
Tokyo Keiki uses AWR software to design and manufacture high-power amplifiers for its advanced solid state radar systems. Despite the fact that PA radar design is extremely complex and time-intensive, the company was able to take advantage of the seamless collaborative design offered in Microwave Office® circuit design software and AXIEM® EM simulation software to greatly reduce its design time, effectively in half.
Isola Group S.à r.l., a market leader in copper-clad laminates and dielectric prepreg materials used to fabricate advanced multilayer printed circuit boards (PCBs), announced that it has launched a new certification program for PCB fabricators. The program is open to qualifying fabricators in the United States able to demonstrate the ability to process such high-speed digital materials as Isola’s I-Tera MT and I-Speed.
Exelis has received an award totaling more than $36 million to provide electronic warfare (EW) equipment, spares and support services to the Turkish Air Force. When fully definitized, the contract could be valued at up to $80 million.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the Agilent EEsof EDA E4727A Advanced Low-Frequency Noise Analyzer—a next-generation hardware and software system for measurement and analysis of flicker noise and random telegraph noise (RTN).
RF Micro Devices Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of high-performance radio frequency (RF) solutions, introduced "RF Fusion" - a complete RF front end (RFFE) solution for global 4G world phones and tablets that integrates all major transmit and receive RF functionality, from the transceiver to the antenna.
In 1999, within the pristine walls of Raytheon’s acclaimed microchip foundry in Andover, MA, engineers covered from head to toe in white protective suits first began their research into a promising new technology: gallium nitride.
