SpacePath Wins New US Amplifier Deal
SpacePath Communications has won a key new contract with a major U.S. satellite equipment manufacturer, the company announced March 16. SpacePath will supply both Ku- and X-band solid-state power amplifiers (SSPA) to its US customer. At 4.45 kg for the 100W Ku-band unit, the lightweight SSPAs will be deployed for commercial and secure military communications in small satellite uplink terminals. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The European-based satcom amplifier manufacturer and equipment supplier designs high performance uplink amplifiers that cover all mission-critical segments including satellite newsgathering, flyaway or truck-based systems, fixed-Earth stations and military satellite communications.
“We are delighted that our lightweight and compact solid-state amplifiers have been selected for these new applications. This latest order yet again underlines our proven credentials in advanced, uplink amplifier technology among the global telecommunications and satcom market,” Colin Bolton, director of business development, SpacePath Communications said in a statement.
