EM Solutions secures high power Ka BUC orders for Aeronautical Applications

EM Solutions has recently received multiple orders for their industry leading Ka band BUC products for use in aeronautical satcom applications.

Peter Bradley, Engineering Director, EM Solutions said: “Over the past 12 months we have been complementing our 3GHz wide multi-band BUC products with new Gan technology. Moving to GaN enables higher power output in a smaller ph ysical footprint with lower demand on the hosting system’s power and heat budgets for equivalent RF power output compared to legacy products .

Mr Bradley added: “ EM Solutions have been supplying Ka b and BUCs that are certified for aero applications for many years however with these new products we are able to provide transmit power levels close to 100 watts from a highly efficient multiband platfor m. Thi s allows our customers to take maximum advantage of the broadband capabilities of today’s military and commercial Ka Band satellites in a single package weighing in at only 11kg.”

EM Solutions Diamond Series Ka Band BUCs are available in power levels starting from 16W and weighing less than 5kg and being multiband enable an earth station to be configured to automatically switch between the military and commercial Ka band frequencies. The user can configure the linearization characteristics and operating satellite RF frequency band from the product’s Ethernet monitor and control interface.

Gary Shmith, Global Sales Director, EM Solutions said:
“We are continually enhancing our Diamond Series Ka m ulti - band BUCs to adapt to different satellite system re quirements such as the military WGS and commercial Inmarsat GX platforms. Our customers can now select a single BUC product for use across multible satellite systems and can access EM Solutions experience across the often complex certification requirements that can vary significant ly from operator to operator. ”

Mr Shmith added: “ As more closed network satellite systems supporting global mobility come online the interface of the BUC into the network can become a critical factor in the certification process. EM Solutions has a breadth of experience to help our customers get their earth stations products into the field as quickly as possible irrespective of where whether the application is aero, maritime or land based.
