Wavestream Endurance 500W Ka-Wideband Block Upconverter positioned to disrupt the TWT amplifier market
San Dimas, California, March 8, 2023 — Wavestream, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of next-generation, high-power solid-state amplifiers, announced today the launch of “Endurance,” a new line of high-power, “always-on” solid state power amplifier (SSPA) products.
Wavestream’s Endurance product line is positioned to lead the industry in linear power with its gateway-ready, fully redundant design that ensures the maximum available power for multiple carrier inputs. The 500W Ka-Wideband Block Upconverter (BUC) covers both military Ka and commercial Ka frequency bands and features hot-swappable components for a truly “always-on” satellite communication solution. As a high-power, high-performance, high-availability modular amplifier solution, Endurance is designed to disrupt the industry by its ability to replace existing SATCOM solutions currently serviced by Traveling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTAs).
“We’re excited that our new Endurance SSPAs are already being evaluated by the US DoD for a significant SATCOM program,” said Bob Huffman, Wavestream’s General Manager. “Once certified, we expect follow-on orders valued at millions of dollars in the coming years and the ability to pursue other US DoD and commercial programs.”
