Advantech Wireless receives $3m in orders to provide GaN-based SSPAs for sitcom-on-the-move and flyaway terminals

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave systems) has been awarded over $3m in orders from defense organizations to provide its gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifier (SSPA) for satcom-on-the-move (SOTM) solutions and flyaway terminals. The units will be WGS certified in the Ka-band and X-band.

Advantech Wireless says that its GaN-based SSPAs and block up-converters (BUCs) - within the same footprint - deliver double the RF power, are 50% smaller, generate 30% less heat and reduce the energy consumption by up to 70%.

"We understand the challenges that government & military leaders face, and our technologies empower them to communicate quickly, reliably and securely," says Cristi Damian, VP business development.  "Defense organizations were among the first to adopt GaN technology, which in exchange allows higher power and higher traffic rates for mission critical operations."
