AWT Global’s new ATC series low PIM anechoic chambers are designed for measuring antennas from 700 to 6000 MHz. Besides the high shielding coefficient of more than 90 dB, ATC series antenna test chambers generate lowest residual passive intermodulation (PIM). The combination of chamber geometry, specifically designed pyramidal electromagnetic absorbing material and innovative manufacturing techniques result in remarkable characteristics.
AWT Global has launched a new line of field strength meters with spectrum analyzer capability: The UBA 9290 Series. The battery operated, handheld analyzers are well suited for wireless field applications but are also a very useful tool in the RF laboratory.
ITT Exelis has received a contract from Raytheon Co. to supply anti-jam GPS antennas to the KC-46 refueling tanker program. Work on this contract will be performed in Bohemia, N.Y.
Lockheed Martin has integrated two of the most important components onto its fourth Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) satellite for the U.S. Navy. Recently engineers mated the multi-beam assembly, which hosts 16 ultra-high frequency (UHF) antennas for distributed, global communications coverage. Earlier this year, the team delivered and integrated the vehicle’s communications system module. With bus and payload now together, the satellite is entering its first system check-outs before progressing to environmental test.
In a major technology development for the mobile industry, Ooredoo has collaborated with CommScope to develop a new approach to building wireless networks, which will improve installation quality and on-going network performance and reduce deployment times, in an alliance that could have major benefits for operators around the world.
According to Euroconsult's newly released research report, Government Space Markets, World Prospects to 2022, government spending on space reached a peak in 2012 of $72.9 billion, a non-negligible increase compared to 2011 which followed two consecutive years of minimal growth.
The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) announced completion of several key milestones that will help bring a more flexible wireless power technology to the global marketplace. This includes growing its member base and working with members to approve and release A4WP's wireless power specification. Additionally, A4WP's branding committee prepares to unveil an official, go-to-market name and logo for its wireless power specification and to launch a parallel technical testing and certification program.
Anritsu Corp., a global provider of innovative communications test and measurement solutions for more than 110 years, announces the opening of a 100 percent India subsidiary in Bangalore. The new office brings together marketing, sales, engineering, services, and support. By co-locating all the departments, the company expects to accelerate the rate of delivery of new products and provide better and broader support to its growing customer base in India. Anritsu also plans to start a branch office operation in Noida within this fiscal year.
KEMET Corp., a leading manufacturer of tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, paper and electrolytic capacitors, and Modelithics have partnered to provide highly accurate and scalable Global™ models of KEMET’s CBR Series of capacitors, sizes 0201, 0402, 0603, and 0805, for RF and microwave applications. As an innovation for this work, aimed at improved design centering, Modelithics used actual low frequency capacitance of parts used for RF model development instead of assumed nominal part value.
