Haigh-Farr, a world leader in the design, development and manufacturing of integrated antennas for defense, space and commercial applications, increases its in-house environmental testing capabilities with the construction of a dedicated facility adjacent to its existing building.
Pasternack announces their new line of portable bench top amplifiers that cover extremely wide frequency bands up to 40 GHz. These rugged RF amplifier modules are designed to meet MIL-STD-202F environmental test conditions for humidity, shock, vibration, altitude and temperature cycle which makes them ideal for use inside high traffic test labs in industries such as aerospace, defense, optical, industrial, telecom and R&D.
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.
