Cobham has developed a new family of Gallium-Nitride (GaN) Solid State Transmitter solutions.
Pronounced as "solstice," SOLSTx is optimized for ground, maritime and airborne applications including air traffic control, weather, telemetry, fire control, and long range surveillance radars, the company said in a statement Monday.
"The GaN-based Solid State technology on which SOLSTx has increased Mean Time Between Critical Failure (MTBCF), reduced operation and sustainment costs, and notably, significantly lower out of band emission which reduces interference with adjacent radars and communication signals," said Jeff Hassannia, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Technology for Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions.
"Our SOLSTx family of solutions is available in a variety of frequency ranges, power levels, packaging and end market applications with advances in GaN coupled with innovative power combining techniques," he added.
Cobham's modular design allows degradation over the life of the hardware versus instantaneous shutdown as experienced with Vacuum Electronics Devices (VED); such as Magnetrons, Klystrons, Traveling Wave Tubes (TWT), and Crossed-Field Amplifiers (CFA) used in current transmitter designs.
Cobham has won a $51 million orders from BAE Systems to equip the F-35 Lightning II platform with microelectronic products. Cobham's offering for the recent orders on the F-35 platform includes microelectronic components and integrated microelectronic assemblies for radar and electronic warfare (EW)
Cobham has won a contract for the production of Antenna Array Panel Assemblies (AAPAs) from Lockheed Martin Corporation. The AAPAs are used in the Block II configuration of the Navys Surface Electronic Warfare Improvement Program (SEWIP)
Cobham has handed over newly designed quartz radome and in-flight refueling probe to be integrated to Indias Tejas MK-1 Light Combat Aircraft. The much awaited Final Operational Clearance of Indias Tejas Light Combat Aircraft was delayed due to non-supply of newly designed quartz radome and a bolt on inflight refueling probe by Cobham UK in March this year, section of Indian Media reported Wednesday
BAE Systems has signed a cooperative agreement with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) for Phase 1 of a technical effort to transition gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor technology developed by the US Air Force to its Advanced Microwave Products (AMP) Center. As part of the effort, BAE will transfer and further enhance the technology, and scale it to 6-inch wafers to slash per-chip costs and improve the accessibility of this defense-critical technology
Cobham has received orders worth tens of millions of dollars for radio frequency microelectronics for F-35 fighter jet program. "Our portfolio of microelectronic components and assemblies enable electronic warfare and radar system sensitivity, helping pilots achieve mission success by maintaining situational awareness and staying safe," said Jill Kale, president of Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions Tuesday
Cobham received orders from a leading Defense firm for radio frequency (RF) microelectronics and antenna assemblies that support an airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) program. Cobham recently received a series of orders from a leading Defense firm for radio frequency (RF) microelectronics and antenna assemblies that support an airborne Electronic Warfare (EW) program valued at approximately $18M, the company said in a statement Monday
