Norsat expands Ka-band offering

Norsat International Inc. (TSX: NII and NYSE MKT: NSAT) has expanded its Ka-band product lines with the launch of the ATOM 50 Watt Ka-band Block Upconverters (BUCs) and Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs), and industry leading 4- and 5-band LNBs, the company saud.

Extending the current capability offered by the ATOM 25W Ka-band product, the ATOM 50 Watt Ka-band BUCs and SSPAs are available in either single or dual-band configurations and provide up to 50W of saturated power (over 25W @ Plin) in the most compact size in the market.

Covering transmit frequencies in both Military and Commercial bands (30.0-31.0 GHz and 29.0-30.0GHz, respectively) the ATOM 50W SSPAs and BUCs can be configured to suit operation on any Ka -band satellite. Ethernet, redundancy configurations, EMI/EMC, and other custom options are also available upon request.

These 50W BUCs are up to 20% smaller, 50% lighter, and 50% more energy efficient than alternatives, enabling a wide range of applications including TWTA replacement, Satellite News Gathering, transportable VSAT, SATCOM on the Move, and Radar. The ATOM 50W also includes ATOMControl, the same Management and Control software that powers the full ATOM Ku and Ka family of products.

The 9000I4-4 and 9000I5-4 series of LNBs extends Norsat´s single, dual, and triple band LNB offering and represent an exciting new part of the Ka product solution.
