A U.S. military systems integrator has awarded the Satcom Division of Communications & Power Industries LLC (CPI) an order totaling more than $4.5 million to provide high-power, X-band traveling wave tube amplifiers (TWTAs) and related products for a significant military communications program.  Under this follow-on contract, CPI's X-band SuperLinear® TWTAs will be used in a shipboard satellite communications program for the U.S. military that CPI has supported for a number of years.

"CPI's X-band satcom amplifiers continue to be selected for this program due to our proven ability to meet the U.S. military's stringent product requirements for long life and high reliability," said Andy Tafler, president of CPI Satcom Division.  "Our innovative and compact high-power SuperLinear amplifiers are extremely efficient, reliable and capable of operating in adverse environmental conditions, including shipboard environments."
