[Via Satellite 12-02-2015] Norsat International has released its ATOM 25-Watt Ka-band Block Upconverter (BUC) and Solid State Power Amplifier (SSPA) products.

The 25W ATOM Ka BUC is software switchable between commercial and military Ka-band frequency (29 to 30 and 30 to 31 GHz), is compliant with Wideband Global Satcom (WGS), and has custom variants from 27 GHz to 32 GHz. Applications for the BUCs and SSPAs include portable VSAT terminals, radar, and more. The ATOM Ka series comes with selectable options, as well as customization capabilities to suit specific customer needs. They are also available in 1:1 redundant configurations.

“We expect this new 25W product to be the first of several new Ka-band products, with expanding wattages to arrive in the coming months. We have high expectations for the success of this new product offering, not only for its differentiating features, but also due to the high inherent demand for applications using Ka-band around the globe,” said Amiee Chan, CEO of Norsat.

Earlier in 2015, Norsat shipped prototypes of the Ka-band BUCs and worked with its customers to ensure the Ka-band BUC and SSPA would meet military standards including shock, vibration, electromagnetic interference, as well as DO-160 airborne standards.
