Featured Products

Multiplexers

Qualification

Flight Microwave has experienced Output Multiplexer designers and tuners that produce superior performance from UHF to Ka Band. The multiplexer design and layout is custom tailored to meet the needs of the payload. These multiplexers may be delivered as a standalone unit or as a unit integrated with ancillaries such as Receive Reject, Harmonic filtering, test couplers and switches. Analysis (Mechanical, Thermal and Power Handling) is performed at FMC with results provided per customer SDRL requirements. Flight has the experience and facilities to provide testing is required for multipactor, corona or PIM.

Filters & Ancillary Hardware

Filters

Flight Microwave has an extensive line of filters from UHF to 75 GHz for use in satellite payloads, airborne systems and ground applications.

FMC’s specializes in custom waveguide and coaxial filters. With a background in Space hardware, FMC’s design emphasis is balancing Mass, RF performance and High power capability.

This same expertise is applied to the design of airborne and ground applications.

Where high volume is required, a focused product line using lean manufacturing principles has been implemented. This methodology has enabled FMC to attract new customers in the airborne and ground segment.

 

Ancillary Hardware

Flight Microwave manufactures Space qualified Test Coupler, Adapters, Loads, Hybrids, Variable attenuators and phase shifters. Flight Microwave can provide these products in standard waveguide sizes (WR15, WR22, WR28, WR34, WR42, WR51, WR62, WR75, WR90, WR112, WR137, WR229, WR340, WR430) or a custom waveguide size suitable for your application. Because standard flanges are typically heavy FMC usually delivers units with customer specified flanges.
