Exhibiting again at IDEX, TMD Technologies Ltd (TMD), foremost West London based manufacturer in the microwave and RF field, will be showing a representative selection of its latest advanced products for air, land and sea defence applications. 

At IDEX 2019 TMD will be showcasing a selection of microwave power modules (MPMs) for EW and defence systems – including two new high efficiency amplifiers. Also on show will be intelligent instrumentation amplifiers, and radar transponders from G2 Engineering – a newly acquired TMD company.

TMD has introduced two new amplifiers to its advanced PTX range of MPMs for radar, EW and communications Operating in the X band, the new TWT based PTX8430 and PTX8501 offer ultra-high efficiency, providing more than 50% improvement over the previous models. TMD has achieved this impressive performance by matching high efficiency TWT technology with TMD’s ultra-efficient power supply topology.

Designed for high power radar applications, on land, sea or air, these new MPMs have a power output of 1 kW over the frequency range 9-10 GHz - with duty cycles of 5 and 10% respectively and 55 dB gain.

PTX8807 

This new MPM features simplified integration for high performance EW and radar systems and provides an output power of up to 200 W over a 30-40 GHz range. Comprising a highpower Ka band helix TWT and switched mode power supply it forms a single ‘drop-in’ unit without the need for high voltage connections.

PTX8110  

The new PTX8110 operates from 6-18 GHz at 200 W and, with its compact design, is easily integrated into those high performance EW and radar systems requiring higher power. Comprising a high power helix TWT and switched mode power supply, the PTX8110 forms a single ‘drop-in’ microwave amplifier unit without the need for potentially unreliable high voltage TWT interconnections.

PTX8815 

The new PTX8815 TWTA is designed for Ka band radar applications such as naval fire control. Featuring broadband capability, covering 34–36 GHz, it offers a peak power of over 1100 W in the mid-band, and 600 W at the band edges with a maximum duty of up to 12%.

Are also presented at IDEX: PTS6900, PTXM Series, PTCM Series and G2 transponders.
