dB Control Exhibits Ka-Band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier for Electronic Warfare Simulation at Dixie Crow Symposium in Georgia

35.5 GHz Hub-Mount TWTA, Other High-Power Products on Display at Museum of Aviation in Booth 13

Fremont, Calif. – March  16, 2017 – dB Control, an international defense electronics manufacturer, will exhibit five high-power products in Booth 13 at the Dixie Crow Symposium, March 21 – 23 at the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia. One of the company’s most highly requested products, the dB-3840 traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA), will be on display for defense contractors and military personnel. The dB-3840 is an outdoor hub-mount Ka-band TWTA operating at 34.5 to 35.5 GHz, 700 Watts pulsed and 10 percent duty cycle.

Also on display will be the dB-4127 microwave power module. This MPM provides double the output power of comparable models and is estimated to be 30 percent more efficient for applications like electronic warfare simulation or ground mobile applications.

“There’s no room for error in the field. Complex military threats must be combated with sophisticated technology and reliable products. Dixie Crow gives defense contractors and military personnel the opportunity to see this sophistication and reliability firsthand,” said dB Control Vice President of Business Development Steve Walley.

Five dB Control Power Products at Dixie Crow in Booth 13:
