A Dual Band SSPA that Offers Lower Cost, Higher Reliability for Satellite Command &
High Power Outdoor SSPA Enclosure
Compact Outdoor SSPA Enclosure
Covering both L and S-bands, the SSPA is the ideal solution for Tracking,
Telemetry, and Control applications with benefits far superior to aging klystron
State College, PA - February 19, 2020 –
Teledyne Paradise Datacom (Paradise),
part of the Teledyne Defense Electronics Group, today announced the wide availability
of a new, leading edge L- and S-Dual Band solid state power amplifier (SSPA) for
today's evolving satellite command systems.
Features & Benefits
- For defense and commercial command and control environments
- Higher reliability compared to Klystron power amplifiers
- Supports critical communications
- Rugged outdoor-rated enclosure
- Highest power densities
- Simultaneously provides excellent linear output power and industry leading efficiency.
Both S- and L-band frequencies have been the industry's bands of choice for positioning
and tracking applications like global positioning systems (GPS) and Tracking, Telemetry,
and Control (TTC) ground stations. This new dual band product offers customers a
virtual "two for the price of one" SSPA solution that dramatically lowers the costs
of command and control, leaves a much smaller footprint, but also delivers higher
reliability compared to traditional klystron power amplifiers. Download the

"Smaller satellites and new deployment technology are reducing satellite launch
costs, and the number of satellites in-orbit is increasing dramatically. This is
increasing the demands on operators performing station keeping, and the need for
reliable command and control systems," said Mike Towner, Senior Director of Sales
and Marketing. "The introduction of the industry's first outdoor dual band SSPA
gives the flexibility of a single amplifier covering both bands, and the reliability
and reduced maintenance costs that come with a solid state solution."
An ideal fit for both Military and Commercial command and control environments,
the L/S-band SSPA provides the high reliability of solid state technology required
to support critical communications between the earth and satellites, in a rugged
Compared to older vacuum-based technology, the enhanced reliability and ease-of-use
gives operators the opportunity to support command and control facilities with non-
or semi-technical staff. In instances where modular solid-state deployments with
n+1 redundancy are used, it is often even possible to benefit from unmanned or remotely
The L/S Dual Band SSPA is available in two power levels, both of which are housed
in rugged, outdoor-rated enclosures. Power levels up to 800W are available in the
High Power Outdoor SSPA package, part number HPAS2800GHXXXXXG, and up to 400W in
the Compact Outdoor SSPA enclosure, part number HPAS2400GCXXXXXG. Both units are
available covering sub-band "G" (1.75 to 2.12 GHz).
