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 March issues of MPD and MMD 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.

L-Band Solid State Amplifier

Model 2226 is a compact, high power GaN solid state CW emitter designed for GPS denial, and is based on the established and field proven Next Generation system architecture. This architecture is tactically deployed and operating on multiple levels in support of a variety of critical DoD missions. It produces a minimum of 2KW across the entire 900 to 1600 MHz band. Equally suited for jamming, threat simulation, multipaction, HIRF, and automotive EMC applications, the 2226 comes complete with internal DDC, external forward and reverse sample ports, and an easy to use web served GUI. In-depth health monitoring with alarms visible on the front panel are also pushed out the LAN port. Output modes include Manual Gain Control (MGC), AGC, and ALC, which provide useful flexibility when integrating into various applications. The 2226 is designed with the latest 50V GaN-on-SiC device technology, which lowers transistor count and reduces combining losses while increasing efficiency and reliability. In addition to the standard array of user configurable, multi-mission mode settings, this amplifier offers user selectable “Graceful Output Power Degradation,” backing down power to a safe operating level in the event of component failure or excessive Load VSWR condition.
