OVERVIEW

1W Ka Band Transmitter for Small Satellites, Cubesats and drones 17.8-20.2 GHz

Our compact Ka Band Receiver is a highly-integrated, versatile and efficient solution for small satellites, 5G and SOTM terminals, specifically designed for low size, mass and power consumption required to meet state-of-the-art customer requirements. Suitable for large variety of missions, from very high to ultralow data-rates, it offers low noise conversion to S band, as well as a fully integrated low-power multiprotocol modem. The integrated UHF Transceiver allows additional forward and return channel for TT&C and redundancy.  Support for numerous interfaces and communication protocols ensure compatibility with all popular Cubesat and Smallsat platforms. Robust construction, component qualification and EMI shielding meet the requirements for space and harsh environments.

APPLICATIONS
