Advantech Wireless wins multi-million dollar contract for ruggedized military-grade SATCOM terminals and GaN-based amplifiers

Advantech Wireless Inc of Montreal, Canada (which manufactures satellite, RF equipment and microwave broadband communications systems) has received a multi-million dollar contract from a NATO member country to provide its ruggedized military-grade SATCOM terminals including its new line of gallium nitride (GaN)-based solid-state power amplifiers (SSPAs). The firm is providing complete terminals for the tactical environment based on its proprietary antenna control systems and fully integrated design.

"Advantech Wireless has over 25 years of experience enabling military forces and government agencies, delivering cutting-edge innovations in communications that solve mission-critical communications challenges," says Cristi Damian, VP business development. "These fully integrated all outdoor systems, include advanced modem technology, sophisticated SATCOM antenna control systems, and the state-of-the-art GaN-based solid-state power amplifiers."

The second-generation GaN-based SSPAs/BUCs (block up-converters) from Advantech Wireless feature what is claimed to be exceptional linearity and operating efficiency. The systems are also said to be the smallest fully integrated units on the market. With built-in design features, they are suitable for harsh environments, Satcom-on-the-Move (SOTM) and man-pack terminal deployments.
