UK-based TMD Technologies (Stand 06-A32) is showcasing its latest technologies for the first time in the UAE. Said Jane McAlister, sales and business development director: “We see many opportunities for involvement within the GCC community with companies that are interested in expanding their indigenous capability, rather than outsourcing the complete solution.”

She highlighted the company’s latest microwave power modules (MPMs), in particular the recently launched travelling-wave tube-based Ka-band PTX8807 and solid-state PTS6900. Operating over the challenging 30-40GHz range with an output power of up to 200W at the maximum 100 per cent duty cycle, the new PTX8807 offers simplified integration for high-performance EW and radar systems. Customers can specify duty, frequency and peak power requirements. It operates reliably at high altitude and high humidity, and is easily integrated into a variety of airborne platforms.

The company is also highlighting its solid-state based MPMs.
