Smiths Interconnect’s broad range of WR51 K-Band passive components are specifically designed for satellite communication payloads in GEO/MEO and LEO orbits. The devices are tuneless and optimised to operate over broad assigned bands. Qualification for spacecraft use has been completed for each product using our comprehensive in-house test facilities and comprises sine and random vibration, mechanical shock and where appropriate RF power TVAC, average power and multipaction, and critical power testing.
In addition to waveguide isolators, circulators,
terminations, transitions, hybrids and integrated
multi-function assemblies operating in frequency ranges from S to V-band, Smiths Interconnect designs and manufactures coaxial, stripline and microstrip space qualified isolators, circulators and terminations operating from UHF to Ka-band.
