New SSPA is ideal for defense-related applications, especially naval shipboard
State College, PA - October 28, 2019 –
Datacom (Paradise), part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, is unveiling
a new Pulsed Radar SSPA (solid state power amplifier) that is designed for Operators
of defense-related tactical radar systems.
- For Defense-related applications
- Ideal for Shipboard requirements
- Designed for navigation, targeting, tracking
- Superior SWaP and power density
- Configurable for diverse radar platforms
- Scalable to address other power levels
- Longer life cycle than legacy systems
- Suitable for commercial navigation & weather/air traffic control systems
- Forced-air convection cooling system with hot-swappable fan trays
- Optional AC power

in Washington, DC.
The solid state technology provides an ideal pathway for customers seeking to
upgrade or replace their existing legacy radar platforms with a newer generation
of technology, one that delivers superior SWaP, power density, scalability, and
performance over a longer life cycle. Additionally, it reduces the risk of complete
loss of service for the Operator.
Importantly, the new
4kW X-band SSPA is configurable to meet diverse
radar platform requirements, and scalable either up or down to effectively address
other power levels as desired. It provides operators of legacy TWT, Magnetron, or
Klystron-based platforms with a starting point for upgrades.
This GaN-based SSPA delivers a very high power density that makes it a perfect
fit for radar applications deployed for navigation, targeting, and tracking purposes.
"Paradise has a distinguished history developing cutting-edge SSPA technologies,
and this advancement is laser-focused on the emerging needs of many OEMs in the
defense industry," said Mike Towner, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing for
Paradise. "The power levels and frequency band make this SSPA a natural fit for
aging pulsed radar application platforms, and its flexibility and scalability are
While the 4kW X-band SSPA is ideal for various defense environments, it can also
be deployed to address similar user needs in the fields of commercial navigation
and weather or air traffic control radar systems.
