Shipboard Satellite Communications Transmitter
ETM was awarded the contract to build legacy replacement HPAs for 60 shipboard satcom terminals in support of the British Navy’s Skynet 5 program. Each unit was built in a split chassis configuration, one for power and one for RF, but within the existing mechanical space. In addition to the form, fit and function match, the ETM units also had to meet the stringent MIL-STD-461 requirements for below-deck shipboard applications with increased reliability relative to the original systems.
This 2250W X-band system supports the British Navy’s Skynet 5 program.
This shipboard satcom system is also CE certified and fully tested to MIL-STD-810E standards for environmental conditions, and to MIL-STD-450E standards for EMI.
