Force Protection And Threat Simulators – Manpack, Vehicle, Fixed Site
Our remarkable hardware and software architecture is advanced beyond any other amplifier supplier and offers break through capabilities not seen before in EW systems. Amoung these capabilities are Multi-domain operations where a single unit is capable of operating in Multi-Domain scenarios as a jamming, communications and radar transmitter at optimal performance with any type of modulation.
Military, Government agency, Tactical radios, Networks
Empower is a major leader in providing leading edge, “Best in Class” power amplifiers for command and control communications for the warfighter, civilian and homeland network applications. These multi-band, multi-mission, highly integrated amplifiers are designed for software-defined radios in manpack, vehicular and fixed site configurations.
Ground based, Shipboard and Airborne (Including UAV)
We offer a wide variety of power amplifiers as stand alone or high power tube drivers up to several kilowatts. Radar applications include HF for over-the-horizon (OTH), VHF for very long range and ground generation and UHF for very long range (e.g. ballistic missile early warning) and foliage penetration (SAR). Empower has also provided amplifiers in L-band for long range air traffic control and surveillance (IFF) as well as S-band for moderate range surveillance and long range weather.
