Fremont, Calif. – March 21, 2016 – dB Control, an international defense electronics manufacturer, is exhibiting five high-power products in Booth 67 at the 41st Annual Dixie Crow Symposium, March 20-24 in Warner Robins, Georgia. Among its products on display will be the dB-4150, a 6 to 18 GHz Smart microwave power module (MPM) with built-in Ethernet interface to communicate equipment status, equipment faults and forward/reverse power. Another MPM, the dB-4127, provides double the output power and is estimated to be 30 percent more efficient than comparable models. Also on display will be the dB-3840, a Ka-band TWT Amplifier, which uses a less saturated portion of the frequency band to transmit at a higher capacity. A full list of dB Control products exhibited at the symposium is as follows:
- dB-3840 – 700 Watts pulsed, 34.5 to 35.5 GHz, outdoor hub-mount Ka-band. Applications: radars, test/measurement, antenna pattern, radar cross-section measurements, electronic warfare (EW) simulation
Microwave Power Modules
- dB-4127 – 200 Watts pulsed/CW, 6 to 18 GHz, conduction cooled. Applications: electronic countermeasures (ECM), EW simulation, ground mobile and airborne platforms
- dB-4150 – 100 Watts CW, 6 to 18 GHz, conduction cooled. Applications: ECM, EW simulation
- dB-3758 – 1000 Watts pulsed, 9 to 10 GHz, conduction cooled. Applications: Multi-mode radars, SAR, manned and unmanned platforms
- dB-2347-01 – 1500 VDC input, 6.4 VDC output @ 68 Amps. Applications: decoy for airborne platforms
“The products we design and manufacture must be reliable because there’s no room for error in the field. At the symposium, we’ll have a chance to show defense contractors and military personnel how we deliver extensively tested, powerful products with a stellar reputation for reliability,” said dB Control VP of Business Development Steve Walley.
dB Control has exhibited at the Dixie Crow Symposium for four years. The event is produced by the Dixie Crow Chapter of the Association of Old Crows (AOC). Held at Robins Air Force Base, this annual event will focus on new EW and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) innovations that counter modern threats. The symposium is expected to draw more than 800 attendees.
