Emerging Fast Switching MANET, MESH Networking, and legacy waveforms supported
Waveforms are evolving at a rapid pace to provide enhanced communication capabilities to the modern-day war fighter. AR Modular RF continues to support legacy waveforms such SINCGARS, HAVEQUICK, HAVEQUICK II, AM, FM, HPW, DAMA, IW, ANW2, SRW and new and emerging waveforms that support fast switching for MANET and MESH Network applications. AR Modular RF amplifiers support the HF, VHF, and UHF frequency bands with new and emerging technologies that can and will support much more.
SATCOM, legacy, and MUOS waveforms
Satellite communication waveforms are providing enhanced communications (voice, video, data) capabilities to the modern-day war fighter. AR Modular RF continues to support legacy SATCOM waveforms, and the new Mobile User Object Network (MUOS) waveform.
Man-portable, man-pack and vehicle-mounted solutions
Man-portable, man-pack and vehicle-mounted models are available. Whichever you need, when you choose AR Modular RF you get booster amplifiers that keep on working through virtually every imaginable hazard.
AR Modular RF provides a full line of amplifiers that cover the broadest frequencies and waveforms. Many amplifiers incorporate RF auto-sensing circuits to switch from receive to transmit as needed. They include Automatic Level Control (ALC), appropriate low pass harmonic or band pass filters, protection against antenna mismatch (VSWR) and overheating. Several models have fully automatic band selection and are SINCGARS-compatible with high speed filter switching to protect other nearby communication networks; and they are fully compatible and manufacturer independent with most radio transceiver systems supporting multiple manufacturer’s tactical radios.
AR Modular RF booster amplifiers pass the toughest battle tests
It isn’t just experience, technological advances, or even the commitment of AR Modular RF that should inspire trust. Before AR Modular RF military booster amplifiers are offered for sale, they’re tested in real battle conditions to assure they will perform in the toughest environments.
These battle-tested booster amplifiers are lightweight and compact. Every model incorporates RF sensing circuits to switch from receive to transmit. They all include automatic level control, low pass harmonic or band pass filters, protection against antenna mismatch (VSWR) and overheating.
Robust booster design for harshest defense environments
No booster amplifiers are tougher, more dependable or more versatile. Most importantly, no booster amplifiers are as easier to use than the amplifiers made by AR. AR booster amplifiers ensure easy set-up with clean, and high-performance signals. They deliver high peak AM signals and low distortion with only small input signals. They continue to provide full power despite high VSWR conditions, such as when on the ground or up against a building. Their sophisticated DC power systems have full DC spike and surge protection. DC regulation keeps RF output constant even when the input voltage drops to low levels.
The bottom line is that they do the job and go the distance through shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, and even water. When troops have a need to go through hell and high water, these are the booster amplifiers that go with them.
Rack Mount Amplifiers and Systems with quick prototyping capability
AR Modular RF designs and manufactures Rack Mount and Amplifier Systems that cover a wide frequency spectrum and offer diverse ranges of power. Some of the most innovative, dependable, and durable RF Amplifier Modules and broadband solid-state RF amplifier systems in the world, these systems are used for communications, medical, scientific, and industrial applications.
