Wavestream Awarded Over $20 Million in Orders for Support of Gateways of Low Earth Orbit Constellation

San Dimas, California, April 19, 2021 — Wavestream, a world leader in the design and manufacture of next-generation, high-power solid-state amplifiers, announced today that it received orders of over $20 million for support of gateways of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) constellations.

Wavestream, was chosen as the vendor of choice to supply Gateway Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) to a leading satellite operator to support the LEO constellation gateways. The orders were received as part of the previously announced contract.

Wavestream’s Gateway-Class PowerStream 160Ka SSPAs, designed specifically for networks using wide bandwidth uplinks and high order modulation schemes, were selected because of their best-in-class technical performance and their unmatched reliability in harsh environments, best addressing the stringent requirements of Non-Geostationary Satellite Orbit (NGSO) constellations.
