BOTHELL, Wash., 14 July 2013. Avionics designers for the Lockheed Martin C-130 four-engine turboprop military aircraft needed new RF amplifiers for onboard airborne communications systems. They found their solution from AR Modular RF in Bothell, Wash.
AR Modular RF has been selected as the top choice to upgrade several C-130 onboard aircraft communications RF and microwave amplifiers, company officials say.
The C-130 upgrades will employ power electronics technologies to fulfill its primary mission to support our troops, serve as convoy escorts, and continue its role as the point of defense.
The upgrades focus on versions of the airframe by stepping up the communication capabilities and extending the communication range, AR officials say.
A pair of AR-75 tactical booster amplifiers is installed on each airframe. This AR Modular RF amplifier is compact, lightweight, and exceeds the shock and vibration requirements even when direct mounted to the airframe.
