ViaSat has executed a contract with Boeing to build ViaSat-2, which is based on ViaSat’s next generation, Ka-Band satellite technology and architecture. ViaSat-2 is expected to be, by far, the world’s highest capacity satellite at the time of launch (scheduled for mid-2016) achieving an unparalleled mix of capacity and coverage.
Lake Shore Cryotronics Inc. will attend the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium 2013 (IMS) in Seattle, WA June 2-7, where it will showcase its family of cryogenic and cryogen-free probe stations for characterizing the performance of early stage devices and materials. IMS is an international gathering of technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice, particularly those in RF, microwave, millimeter wave, and terahertz (THz) frequencies.
An ITT Exelis product that detects and locates GPS interference sources in 3-D by using longitude, latitude and altitude has successfully completed a significant integration milestone.
With today’s launch of the fourth GPS IIF satellite, Boeing and the U.S. Air Force continue modernizing the Global Positioning System that millions of people worldwide rely on as a navigation and timing resource.
Northrop Grumman Corp. and the U.S. Navy launched a new chapter in the history of unmanned systems – carrier-capable unmanned aircraft – by successfully catapulting the X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System (UCAS) demonstrator from the deck of the USS George H.W. Bush(CVN-77).
Mobile operators, OEMs, chipset and infrastructure vendors are challenged as never before with the deployment of new network, device and service technologies. The industry-accepted testing paradigm is under severe stress to accommodate an explosion of new test cases without corresponding increases in budget or time to market. At CTIA 2013, Azimuth is pleased to unveil solutions for a new testing paradigm.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, introduced groundbreaking RF switching technology that is enabling early adopters to implement carrier aggregation solutions. Carrier aggregation allows mobile service providers to combine spectrum and increase data rate throughput by utilizing two or more bands simultaneously instead of the single band method used currently, thereby giving consumers an enriched data experience regardless of location.
Raytheon Co. has delivered two electronic attack payloads in support of the U.S. Army's Networked Electronic Warfare, Remotely Operated (NERO) system. The payloads were delivered as part of a contract awarded by the U.S. Navy NAVSEA-Crane in 2012. NERO is utilized on the Army's MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAS (Umanned Aircraft System) as an airborne electronic attack system capable of jamming enemy communications systems.
Planar Monolithics Industries Inc. (PMI) has announced that effective April 30 2013, PMI acquired100% of all the assets & property of Hari LLC.
Custom MMIC, (www.CustomMMIC.com), a developer of performance-driven monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs), has added a new low noise amplifier, the CMD185P3, to its expanding line of standard amplifier products.
