Advantech Wireless Technologies releases ultra-high power SSPA system for TT&C and deep space comms
Advantech Wireless Technologies announced today the release of its DeepBlu-Series 8.5kW Wideband C-Band Modular SSPA System for LEO, MEO and GEO applications that include Satellite Telemetry, Tracking, and Control (TT&C) and Deep Space Communications.
The newly designed DeepBlu-Systems consist of multiple high-power SSPAs packaged in ruggedized, outdoor enclosures and integrated into a single frame structure that includes combiners, loads, power distribution and M&C – perfectly suited for fixed and full motion antenna installations. Modular architecture with 1:N built-in redundancy and field replaceable amplifiers minimizes downtime, resulting in the highest service availability in the industry.
“Our DeepBlu high-power SSPA systems are designed to produce the high levels of EIRP necessary for the simultaneous control of multiple satellites, while facilitating communications with assets in Deep Space. Today’s satellite modem technology can generate links with modulation schemes of up to 1024 APSK that, when combined with solid state power amplifier technology, can achieve extremely high levels of bandwidth efficiency. DeepBlu is an excellent enabler for critical operations. As the consumption of bandwidth from the expansion of 5G accelerates, traditional teleport operators will be able to accommodate more users in less C-band spectrum,” said Cristi Damian, VP Business Development at Advantech Wireless Technologies.
