AR Modular RF recently announced the completion of a new 50 W auto-tuning, multi-band tactical booster amplifier, designed to make it easy for troops to maintain constant, reliable communications in even the worst environments.

The new AR-50 booster amplifier boosts tactical radio signals from handheld and back-pack transceivers operating in the 30 to 512 MHz band. It provides 50 W output with as little as 2 W input and offers two antenna ports dedicated to line-of-sight (LOS) or UHF Satellite (SATCOM). The system also provides a switchable low-noise amplifier (LNA) and a three-position RF output level control. The small, compact, lightweight unit can run from either 12 or 24 V vehicle power systems.

AR Modular RF has received its initial order for model AR-50 Booster Amplifiers, and units will begin being shipped shortly.
