Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) acquired ASC Signal Corp., which designs and builds advanced satellite communications, radar and high-frequency antennas and controllers. ASC Signal's high-performance antennas are used in commercial and government satellite communications, terrestrial communications, imagery and data transmission, and radar and intelligence applications.
Mercury Systems, Inc., a leading high-tech commercial provider of more affordable secure and sensor processing subsystems powering today’s critical defense and intelligence applications, announced it received a $2.3 million order from a leading defense prime contractor for high-performance digital signal processing modules for use in a signals intelligence (SIGINT) application.
Rohde & Schwarz is introducing a powerful scanning direction finder with diverse application options. The R&S DDF5GTS offers fast, accurate direction finding and uses multichannel DF antennas for sensitivity that meets the highest demands while ensuring immunity to reflections.
When developing radar sensor chipsets, users can now use the new Rohde & Schwarz solution to simulate a realistic scenario in the lab. For example, it is possible to simulate vehicles with different moving profiles or stress tests in different environments. As a result, developers can verify the signal processing algorithms of the sensor at an early stage.
Mercury Systems Inc., www.mrcy.com, a leading provider of affordable, commercially developed, open sensor processing systems and services for critical commercial, defense and intelligence applications, announced it received $4.4 million in orders from a leading defense prime contractor for advanced radio frequency (RF) microwave tuner and intermediate frequency (IF) products for a naval signals intelligence (SIGINT) application.
RFMW, Ltd. announces design and sales support for a wideband GaAs VPIN limiter capable of protecting sensitive components against high power incident signals. The TriQuint TGL2205-SM operates from 2 to 6 GHz with low insertion loss of less than 0.6 dB. It can limit up to 100 W incident pulsed-power with a low flat leakage of less than 16.5 dBm. The TGL2205-SM die has a protective surface passivation layer that provides enhanced environmental robustness. The TGL2205-SM does not require DC bias and is available in a 4 x 4 mm QFN package allowing simple integration with minimal impact to system performance. TriQuint's TGL2205-SM is well suited for both commercial and defense related applications.
