500 W C-Band Troposcatter Amplifier

TRP500-4450 Solid State Power Amplifier
500 Watt C-Band Indoor/Outdoor Troposcatter SSPA

The TRP500-4450 Solid State Power Amplifier provides 500 Watts of transmit power for tropo systems in a compact design suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Solid State Amplifiers provide a significant improvement over previous generations of tube-based troposcatter amplifiers in both reliability and efficiency, resulting in lower total operation and maintenance costs.

The TRP500-4450 utilizes intelligent monitoring and control capabilities to enable full remote M&C capabilities (via serial or Ethernet) and record time stamped critical operational parameters so that users can quickly and easily gather data about both the unit itself, and its operational environment.

As with all Comtech troposcatter SSPAs, the TRP500-4450 is fully compatible with the CS-series modems’ automatic power control features, allowing the SSPA to automatically adjust the transmit power of a system to compensate for the long-term atmospheric variations inherent to troposcatter communications.
