Our remarkable hardware and software architecture is advanced beyond any other amplifier supplier and offers break through capabilities not seen before in EW systems. Among these capabilities are Multi-domain operations where a single unit is capable of operating in Multi-Domain scenarios as a jamming, communications and radar transmitter at optimal performance with any type of modulation.Military Amplifiers
Empower is a major leader in providing leading edge, "Best in Class" power amplifiers for command and control communications for the warfighter, civilian and homeland network applications. These multi-band, multi-mission, highly integrated amplifiers are designed for software-defined radios in manpack, vehicular and fixed site configurations.Communications Amps
EMC compliance labs are choosing Empower RF for its technology advancements that have leapfrogged the old establishment while offering refreshing and long overdue performance and feature set enhancements. We provide best in class RF and Microwave amplifiers that go beyond 200V/m CW and 600V/m pulsed for todays demanding Radiated Susceptibility testing requirements.EMC Test Amplifiers
We offer a wide variety of power amplifiers as stand alone 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.Radar Amplifiers
The growing demand in commercial and military applications for higher data rates, greater reliability, and lower cost is driving technology upgrades in fixed site and tactical mobile satellite uplink transmitters. Higher data rates is the main catalyst driving the trend of solid state replacement of legacy tube systems. But it’s not solid state alone that matters. It’s the electro-RF/mechanical architecture that brings additional performance and reliability advantages.Satcom Amplifiers
Empower RF Systems Model 2237 is a high performance, liquid cooled, pulsed transmitter operating from 1 to 2 GHz, designed for maximum waveform flexibility. Another variation of Empower’s Gen3 platform, the 2237 is configured for L-Band radar, test, and EW applications. The deployment of the 2237, along with the previously announced 2244, further solidifies the solid state, high power, liquid cooled L-Band product baseline that has been developed. This new modern architecture offers scalability for affordable upgrade paths to future power needs by adding hardware to an existing system.
The 2237 transmitter layout consists of a system controller in a 3U 19-inch rack unit and 16 hot swappable 2U amplifier drawers with each amplifier drawer containing an integrated power supply in its 2U chassis. There is no separate system level power supply. This arrangement eliminates the risk of an RF section or single power supply failure taking the entire amplifier offline. In the event of an RF pallet or PA booster failure only a fractional reduction of output power is realized, and the amplifier system remains on air. These Fast Field Replaceable (FFR) drawers allow hot or muted swapping with less than 15 minutes MTTR. The result is a system with extreme Effective MTBF. You can watch a demonstration of fast field replacement of a PA booster at the video link included below.
Sophisticated digital input and output RF detection algorithms measure Peak, RMS, and Envelope. Digital processing of the detectors allow capabilities not previously found on COTS pulse amplifiers:
