Microwave Power Modules

L3 Electron Devices' MPMs are supercomponents that combine a solid-state driver amplifier with a micro-TWT and a power supply in one package that is much smaller, lighter and more efficient than a comparable TWTA or SSPA. L3 manufactures both the TWT and power supply and offers a wide range of standard products as well as custom solutions.

Our MPMs are available in bands from 2 to 95 GHz with output powers from 40 to 200 watts. All L3 MPMs are optimized for demanding defense applications that require small, lightweight, and environmentally-rugged, high-power microwave amplifiers. Our MPMs are used in multiple UAV and manned airborne applications, as well as Space, Naval and Terrestrial systems.
