Strong second-half caps off an exceptional year.
May 4, 2021 - East Brunswick, NJ - Triad RF
Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative RF/Microwave amplifiers
and integrated radio systems for challenging environments, is proud to announce
that in partnership with Blue Canyon Technologies (BCT), now a wholly owned subsidiary
of Raytheon, a
Triad RF amplifier is providing high RF power in the transmitter
of a BCT nano-satellite. The units are presently stored in the Northrop Grumman
Cygnus spacecraft which docked with the International Space Station (ISS) in February
of this year. The spacecraft is part of the NG-15 commercial resupply mission and
will remain attached to the ISS until May. The BCT nano-satellite powered by the
Triad RF amplifier will be released from Cygnus on the return trip. Once launched,
it will be enabling the ultra-long range data communication link needed to continuously
monitor the spacecraft from earth.
"Triad's amplified radio system experience was key to the BCT/Cygnus success,"
says Dean Handrinos, co-founder of Triad RF. "They informed us that our track record
of designing and building fully-integrated, expertly tested, lightweight radios
for space systems proved to be game-changing for this project. Every component impacting
size, weight, and power (SWaP) needed to be fully optimized across the board."
