Description

In the era of New Space – LEO, MEO and GEO HTS satellite constellations and addressing the New Ground segment – AESA antennas are believed to be key.

As a well known manufacturer of high quality, high performance, cost effective Professional Satcom Block Downconverter products and related equipment, we wanted to apply our knowledge and experience in Block Frequency converters to the AESA market. Some time ago, after extensive evaluation, we started development with a modular approach for both Uplink and Downlink Block Frequency converter products.

The result of our efforts is what we are presenting here, a range of State-of-the-Art Frequency Blockup converters (BUC) and Blockdown converters (BDC) for both Ku- and Ka-Bands, featuring unique functionality. 

Also available as AESA upconverter modules »»
