Advanced microwave power modules featured at Farnborough Airshow

On show at this year's Farnborough Airshow will be an example of the latest microwave power modules from TMD Technologies. Particularly applicable for avionics applications, these MPMs are ultra compact and lightweight, as well as providing high efficiency and reliability.

Suitable for radar, EW and communications applications, the pulsed and continuous wave "drop-in" amplifier blocks are fully integrated, making installation simple and safe.

In the ATC radar field, TMD will be promoting its innovative PTX7610 unit. This complete S-band transmitter is suitable for commercial or military air traffic control radar and offers a range of enhanced features and user benefits.

At the heart of the transmitter is the company's PT6055 S-band TWT (travelling wave tube) which, combining high efficiency, reliability and long life, has proved an outstanding success in Watchman radars worldwide.

TMD has also developed a full systems capability for ATC primary airport radar, available as a turnkey product or integrated into larger systems.

Other applications for the UK company's microwave products include ECM and towed decoys for EW, satellite communications links, simulation and training, as well as EMC testing, high power component testing and scientific research.

TMD will be exhibiting as part of the A|D|S stand, H1/B15. The Farnborough International Airshow takes place from 9 to 15 July 2012.
