Critical technologies and capabilities required for this application
Empower RF Systems offers a wide variety of power amplifiers as standalong or high power tube drivers up to several kilowatts. Radar applications
include HF for over-the-horizon (OTH), VHF for very long range and ground generation and UHF for very long range (e.g. ballistic missile early warning)
and foliage penetration (SAR). Empower has also provided amplifiers in L-band for long range air traffic control and surveillance (IFF) as well as
S-band for moderate range surveillance and long range weather.
How Empower is positioned to support these applications
Empower RF Systems utilizes the latest semiconductor technologies to provide high gain, high peak power capability, and pulse fidelity. Exceptional
performance, long term reliability, high efficiency and sharp rise/fall times are achieved by employing advanced RF matching networks and combining
techniques, EMI/RFI filters, and all qualified components. Our amplifiers are constructed of modular RF sections offered individually for size and
weight constrains as well as in rack cabinets with power supplies to meet any power requirements. Systems have built in control, monitoring and
protection functions and forced air cooling as required.
Empower manufactures RF amplifiers to meet the environmental conditions of ground based, shipboard and airborne applications.
Empower RF’s ISO9001 Quality Assurance Program assures consistent performance and the highest reliability.
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.
Key Design Wins Capability Showcase
Empower RF Systems provides many of the shelf (COTS) solutions as illustrated here in capability spread sheets shown here. We also can provide derivatives
of these units to decrease NRE costs and shorten lead times. Empower designs and manufactures custom solutions to meet specific frequency and power requirements
in addition to specialized packaging. Our core strengths reside in the 1MHz-6GHz frequency range with RF power outputs to 20kW.
