SpacePath Communications will be showcasing its high-power mmWave traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) at Satellite 2024 in Washington DC.

SpacePath’s very high-power TWTA amplifiers, coupled with broadband mmWave frequencies, enables significantly higher data rates for commercial, military and scientific missions.

The company’s latest mmWave amplifiers on display at Satellite 2024 will include:

  • 550 W K-Band TWTA (22.5 to 23.5 GHz) for lunar and deep-space missions
  • 750 W Ka-Band TWTA (27.5 to 31.0 GHz) for high-throughput satellite and military applications
  • 200 W Q-Band TWTA (43.5 to 45.5 GHz) for military SATCOM

Completing SpacePath’s broad product offering, existing mmWave products include:

  • 400 W K-Band TWTA (22.5 to 3.5 GHz)
  • 650/550 W Ka-Band TWTA (27.5 to 31.0 GHz)
  • 180/190 W Q-Band TWTA (43.5 to 45.5 GHz)
  • 250 W V-Band TWTA (47.2 to 51.4 GHz)

SpacePath’s third-generation high-power amplifier technology incorporates many market-leading features to streamline maintenance, drive down cost and simplify overall system operation.

These include:

  • Modular construction for ease of assembly and service
  • Revolutionary compressed carbon cooling for smaller, lighter form factor
  • Plug-n-play compatibility with competitor’s command interface.

Colin Bolton, director of business development, SpacePath Communications, said: “The growth markets for high-power amplifiers are in high-throughput satellite networks at Ka- and Q/V-band as well as military and scientific missions at K- and Q-band. At Satellite 2024, we’ll be showcasing our new mmWave amplifiers which feature the highest power available to serve these demanding market segments.”

SpacePath’s high performance uplink amplifiers cover all mission-critical segments including high-throughput satellite, mobile satellite, fixed-earth stations and military satellite communications.
