Photonis Defense leverages their expertise in vacuum technology along with modern solid-state components to construct compact, integrated Microwave Power Modules. These modules amplify radio frequency signals to high power levels for both military and commercial applications. Each module consists of a high gain solid-state driver (MMIC) paired with a multi-collector traveling wave tube, and their associated power supplies, resulting in a powerful yet lightweight amplifier.

Photonis Defense's Microwave Power Modules meet the spectral, bandwidth, and power requirements of numerous modern microwave systems used in radar systems, Satcom data links, and electronic countermeasures. Additionally, these systems are ideal for airborne applications where volume, weight, and prime power are at a premium. For research purposes, these modules can be utilized as compact laboratory amplifiers.

By utilizing a high-efficiency miniature traveling wave tube, Photonis Defense's microwave power modules are recognized for their low noise amplification and low SWaP design.
