As we witness the evolution of integrated communication, we also observe the increased number of requirements for airborne microwave transmission, ranging from satellite to air-to-ground CDL band communications. Airborne applications introduce many challenging design constraints including increased temperature ranges, thermal management, vibration and shock, EMC/EMI, power requirements, and safety, all while maintaining portability as a key factor.
Communication requirements and channels have evolved drastically in the age of globalization and it has become imperative to enhance connectivity between organizations, world-wide teams, headquarters and employees on the field. Radio communications play an essential role in this, especially in public safety, fleet operations, mining and military applications.
The major consistent trend in the satcom industry is the necessity to achieve greater performance while reducing the size of the device. Microwave component design engineers have to balance SWaP for BUCs and SSPAs, and deal with the high heat fluxes involved.
