The objective of the Ka band LNA EQM program is to be fully prepared for flight production of units. In order to achieve this we have to present to our customers fully qualified units. In the program we included two different EQMs which cover all different product variants needed by customers. In the programme we included design and development of all support hardware and software for a full flight production. Our aim is to be a competitive and fully prepared supplier already in the first production project.
The program has kept RUAG Space competitive both in Europe and US in the Telecom Payload product area.
With this development separate Ka Band LNA units for both primary as well as secondary power are qualified and included in the RUAG Space product family for telecom payloads. Another main feature of the development and qualification is to allow flexible stacking of up to 4 multiple LNA channels in the same unit without need of re-qualification.
