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 sets the bar for extreme high-power solid state COTS amplifiers. The Model 2236 is liquid cooled and combines the output of two six foot cabinets with each cabinet combining sixteen 2U power amplifiers. Lower and higher power versions of this amplifier are available due to the scalable, modular design.
Operating from 2800 to 3500MHz, the flexible pulse handling capabilities of this fielded system includes 20% duty cycles with pulse widths from 200ns to 500us and PRFs up to 500kHz.
The 2236 is designed for lower total cost of ownership and higher availability than TWTs and legacy solid state implementations. The transmitter consists of a system controller in a 3U 19-inch rack unit and a total of thirty two 2U 19-inch rack 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 drawer failure, only a fractional reduction of output power is realized, and the amplifier system remains on air. A single 2U PA drawer and 3U system controller would comprise a spare system. Servicing costs and technician expertise are much lower due to the Fast Field Replaceable (FFR) design. Drawers can be hot swapped (optional) or muted swapped (standard), from the front, in less than 15 minutes. The result is a system with extreme Effective MTBF. Droop correction option is available. Consult factory for the capability of digitally modulated signals on the pulse carrier.
