Designed for airborne satcom systems needing high power density with high efficiency, Falcons are high-performance, in-cabin and cabin-exterior SSPAs/BUCs designed for and certified to DO-160 and MIL-STD-810 requirements. These Falcon SSPAs with internal L-band BUCs, provide extensive data logging, very high reliability, attenuation control and full calibration capability. Available in both Ku-band and Ka-band, Falcon SSPAs provide high performance and high linear power density for the demanding airborne satcom applications. These SSPAs are:
