MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The June issue of MPD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

GaN Block Upconverters

The company has expanded its ATOM Series of block upconverters (BUCs) with the addition of GaN BUCs. The ATOM series of Ku- and Ka-band GaN and GaAs BUCs are small, light, and extremely efficient. With industry leading size, weight, power, and MIL-STD specs, these BUCs can be integrated into a variety of systems with the most stringent specifications and extreme form factors. Features include outstanding thermal management; excellent SWaP balance; high customization ability; and rugged shock-, weather-, and vibration-proof construction. They are ideal for applications such as airborne, radar, TWTA replacement, SOTM, COTP, portable VSAT, CDL, and more. The small size and low weight simplifies integration, saves space on platform and in transit cases, and leads to lower vehicle payload weight.
