ARC Technologies is showcasing its wide range of capabilities to solve microwave and RF interference (RFI), radar absorbing, and EMI control challenges at the 2016 IEEE EMC Symposium in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
ViaSat received a $33 million non-competitive, firm-fixed-price contract from the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) to provide senior leaders and support staff with global in-flight, broadband communications services — "a situation room in the sky."
Flirtey, a drone delivery service, has completed the first fully autonomous drone delivery to a private residence to advance research toward integrating drones into the National Airspace System. This delivery is the first time a U.S. customer has received a package to their home via drone, representing a historic milestone in both U.S. and global commerce.
Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, debuts brand new lines of waveguide bends operating from 5.85 to 90 GHz across 12 frequency bands (from C Band to W Band). These waveguide bends are commonly used in applications such as instrumentation, test benches, high efficiency RF, microwave and mm-wave transmissions, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom.
Infineon will buy Wolfspeed for $850 million. The acquisition provides a lucrative exit for Wolfspeed’s parent company Cree and allows Infineon to add GaN capability to its commercial RF power portfolio. But what does this mean for the US DoD when a foreign company buys a Category 1A Trusted Foundry facility with DoD manufacturing readiness level eight (MRL 8) designation?
Integra Technologies Inc. (ITI), a leading designer and manufacturer of high-power RF transistors, pallets and amplifiers, announced the completion of a 1 kW GaN high efficiency amplifier, IGNP0450M1000, for aerospace radar applications, funded by NASA/JPL through SBIR Phase I and II grant awards.
The U.S. Air Force awarded Raytheon $34.8 million to demonstrate upgraded electronic warfare capabilities for the Miniature Air Launched Decoy-Jammer (MALD-J) missile. Development of the new version of the MALD-J, called MALD-X, will be completed in 24 months, culminating in two flight demonstrations.
Cobham SATCOM has developed a new version of its SAILOR 900 VSAT Ku-Band antenna, featuring a new Block Up Converter that delivers the potential for satcom service providers to deliver higher uplink bandwidths.
