Superior, Hot Swappable Components and GaN-Based Technology Underscore ModuMAX and QuadMod Reliability and Versatility

General Dynamics' SATCOM Technologies will include the Company's next-generation Solid State Power Amplifiers at SATELLITE 2016 March 7-10 at the Gaylord Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland.

SATCOM Technologies' ModuMAX and QuadMod Gallium Nitride (GaN)-based amplifiers are completely modular, offering saturated power from 500 Watts up to 5 kilowatts in Ku-Band.

The new SSPAs are designed with the highest operational integrity for mission critical applications. Increased power levels provide excellent support for such higher power applications as commercial, military, government and teleport operations.

Crissy Pierson, General Dynamics' Product Line Manager, said, "The enhanced design for both our ModuMAX and QuadMod models offers improved linear performance, higher reliability and increased efficiency all within a true hot-swappable amplifier chassis."

General Dynamics' advanced technology leads the market in true hot-swappable architecture designed for robust applications where 100% uptime is required. The hot-swappable amplifiers provide outstanding throughput and flexibility for single and multi-carrier operations.

"Our patented ModuMAX and QuadMod SSPA hot-swappable component architecture minimizes real-time repairs to less than three minutes for modular replacement without any service impact," Pierson said. "There are no other amplifiers in the market that can match the plug-and-play maintenance ease that ModuMAX and QuadMod hot-swappable products provide."
