dB Control Wins $1.1 Million Defense Contract With Potential for $5 Million to Manufacture High Power 70-100kW C-Band Coupled-Cavity TWT Amplifiers to Be Used for Ground Mobile and Shipborne Radar

dB Control Wins $1.1 Million Defense Contract With Potential for $5 Million to Manufacture High Power 70-100kW C-Band Coupled-Ca

dB Control, an established manufacturer known for its reliable, high-power microwave amplifiers, radar transmitters and power supplies, was awarded a contract from a major defense contractor to provide coupled-cavity Traveling Wave Tube (TWT) amplifiers to be used for radar applications. The initial $1.1 million award for high-power (70kW to 100kW) fully integrated C-Band TWT amplifiers has the potential to reach another $4 to $5 million over the next year.

The contract was awarded based on the ability of dB Control’s coupled-cavity TWT amplifiers to deliver extremely high power over the selected radar band. In addition to high power, the amplifiers also provide improved performance due to very low phase noise and spurious. Compact, and designed for both ground mobile and shipborne applications, the TWTAs are available in a variety of radar bands.

Earlier this year, dB Control announced that it had signed three contracts worth nearly $8 million to provide high-power TWT amplifiers and microwave power modules (MPMs) to major U.S. defense contractors supplying the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force. The company also announced that it had nearly doubled its total floor space from 25,500 to 40,000 square feet by acquiring the manufacturing space adjacent to its existing facility at 1100 Auburn Street in Fremont, Calif. This additional footage enables dB Control to meet the rising demand for depot repair services, specialized contract manufacturing, and high-voltage, RF, microwave, and environmental testing services.

“The defense contractors tell us we won these contracts based on our TWT amplifiers’ superior design, our reputation for reliable products, and our ability to manufacture in high-volume,” said Vice President Meppalli Shandas.

dB Control, Inc. designs and manufactures reliable high-power microwave amplifiers, transmitters, microwave power modules (MPM), power supplies and modulators for radar, electronic countermeasure (ECM), data links, communication and instrumentation applications. Available in production quantities, dB Control’s modular products can be quickly and easily configured to meet custom specifications and platform requirements for ground-based, shipboard and high-altitude military manned and unmanned aircraft.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
