January 21, 2013 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
L-3 Electron Devices has introduced its latest Ku-Band Microwave Power Module (MPM), which produces a full 70 W of linear power in the 14.4 to 15.35 GHz operating range.

The complete module weighs in at just six pounds, is ruggedized for environmental conditions (-54 to +85°C), is MIL-STD-461-compliant and is packaged in an industry leading 7- x 7.5- x 2.6-inch high-density form factor.

This standard product module is primarily intended for airborne data link communication systems and can be optionally reconfigured for custom mechanical designs, including a forced air heat exchanger subsystem that can be mated to the core amplifier.
