WAVEGUIDE COMPONENTS

OVERVIEW

Waveguide components, which aim to transmit RF signals with low loss or which allows transmission of high power RF signals, are qualified for geostationary satellites.

Several different waveguide products with different characteristics are available with the possibility of customization according to specific customer or mission requirements. These products can be used to combine, filter or separate RF signals from each other.

// WAVEGUIDE COMPONENTS

  • Available for different frequency bands
  • Waveguide components with optional coaxial connector assemblies
  • High power handling for high power applications
  • Analyzed for multipaction and corona
  • Manufactured using aluminium 6061-T6 or lnvar for thermal stability
  • Silver plated for low insertion loss performance
  • Structural mass optimization for optimum solutions and customization upon customer request
  • Fully space qualified

// HYBRID COUPLERS AND TEST COUPLERS

  • Hybrid couplers for telemetry and telecommand applications
  • Test couplers for telemetry and telecommand applications

 

// FILTERS AND MULTIPLEXERS

  • Low pass and band pass filters for harmonic and unwanted signal rejection
  • Diplexers and OMUX's for TCR subsystems
