ETL Systems Launches High Performance Power Amplifiers for Jamming

Applications Will Include Counter-IED Operations
ETL Systems has expanded its product range with a new line of ultra-portable RF power amplifiers offering high efficiency, broad frequency coverage and a compact form-factor in a variety of power levels, suited to applications such as broadband frequency jamming and counter Remote Controlled Improvised Explosive Devices (RC-IEDs). The increased threat of RC-IEDs makes the power amplifiers ideally suited for government/defence applications such as RF frequency jamming systems, but they can also be used in medical applications, radar simulators, communication testing and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing.

A broad range of operating frequencies includes 20-500 MHz, 500-2700 MHz and 2500-6000 MHz. Designed for maximised efficiency coupled with high output power levels ensures maximum effectiveness with low size, weight and DC power (SWAP) requirements, the amplifiers are based on advanced Gallium Nitride (GaN) high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) technology for high efficiency, good thermal conductivity, high breakdown voltages and low energy consumption. Benefitting from high efficiency and gain with 20, 35, 40, 60, or 100W saturated power options, each amplifier module is integrated into a compact housing, designed for easy integration, to a broad range of transmit antennas, filters and multiplexers.

The portable design of the amplifiers makes them ideal for operations in vehicle mounted systems, man-packs or UAS. The range, available as standalone components or mounted in a 2U high 19″ rack chassis, which offers dual redundant hot-swap power supplies, local and remote control and monitoring, will be unveiled at the Association of Old Crows Convention in Washington, DC, at the end of this month, according to the company.
