ELECTRONIC WARFARE

[ Force protection, Manpack, Vehicle, Fixed site ]

Cutting edge, compact, ultra broadband, solid state power amplifiers from Empower play a major role in Electronic Warfare applications.

Empower has a versatile product line and has become a premier leader in the design, development and production of Gallium Nitride (GaN) power amplifiers. Although Empower has many product lines encompassing state-of-the-art Bipolar, MOSFET, LDMOS and GaAs FET devices, GaN has become the marquee technology for broadband Electronic Attack amplifiers.

Empower is the industry leader in providing higher power, more efficiency, smaller, lighter and reliable broadband power amplifiers for airborne, ground, manpack, and shipboard platforms.

Empower's extensive power amplifier products span the frequency range from 20 to 6000 MHz. The existing designs provide a proven engineering foundation to work with our customers in developing custom specific power amplifiers in the frequency ranges:

  • 20 to 1000 MHz
  • 1000 to 2500 MHz
  • 2000 to 6000 MHz

Key Design Wins Capability Showcase

Empower has delivered over 30,000 RCIED jammers at production rates exceeding 1000 amplifiers per month.

Ruggedness

Higher breakdown voltages with GaN devices allow the amplifiers to withstand high peak voltage waveforms and modulations such as Gaussian noise.

Reliable operation when subjected to high voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) from the antenna which is a likely occurrence on a vehicle during combat.

GaN devices also come in smaller packages with higher power densities which enable the amplifiers to achieve smaller footprints of overall size and weight.

All hardware is subject to over-temperature, EMI and EMC, shock and vibration and all other environmental testing required.

Empower RF Systems has extensive experience with Multi-Function, Highly-Integrated Assemblies. Customer-specific requirements are met by incorporating Integrated Filters, T/R switches, DC/DC Converters, Forward/Reverse Power detectors and RCV LNAs into the Amplifier.
