TRIAD Amplified Radios

Rugged high-power radios for UAV communications

TRIAD Amplified Radio SystemThe Triad High Power Radio (THPR) series features high-data rate, long-range radio links for unmanned systems that are easy to integrate and deploy. Combining high-power RF subsystems with proven core radios, these rugged low-SWaP systems are ideal for long-range UAS communications and military MANET (Mobile Ad Hoc Networking) applications.

Our THPR modules advanced active power control and equalization circuitry to prevent any possible drift issues, delivering ultra-stable RF output power and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and providing unmatched RF link robustness.

Triad High Power Radio systems can cover UHF, L, S, C, X and Ku bands, and are available in three different form factors for ultra-low-SWaP unmanned systems, rugged wheeled/tracked/maritime systems, or rack-mounted chassis applications in large unmanned vehicles. Our team of engineers and application specialists can provide full support, tailoring the radio to your unmanned system.

RF Power Amplifiers (PA)

Rugged RF Power Amplifiers for UAV Applications

RF Power Amplifiers

Our rugged solid-state RF power amplifiers are ideal for unmanned vehicle applications such as UAV data links. We select the best FET technology for the application, maximizing linearity while minimising DC power consumption and thus heat emission.

All of our power amplifiers have DC sections with advanced features including protection against over, under, and reverse voltage conditions. We also offer modules with our Versatile DC Supply (VDSTM) technology, eliminating the need for external DC converters and resulting in greater overall system efficiency.

In addition, we have integrated monitoring and control sections that are powered by microprocessor, FPGA and CPLD ICs. These provide functions such as RF power measurement, temperature monitoring, DC monitoring to the device level, and many other configurable alarms and warnings that can be tailored to the customer’s system requirements.

Our RF Amplifiers are available in frequencies up to 18 GHz, with bandwidths of 200-800 MHz for standard models and up to 12000 MHz for broadband. Custom-modified versions of these COTS amplifiers are also available upon request.
