Passive Microwave Products
Commercial Satellite Multiplexers
COM DEV has manufactured microwave multiplexers and filters since 1974, building its reputation for performance and reliability on this core technology. Most fixed service communications satellites use input and output microwave multiplexers in the conventional C, Ku and Ka frequency bands. As satellite payloads increasingly grow larger, COM DEV multiplexers often become large integrated assemblies which include other microwave components — this gives our customers the added benefit of simpler spacecraft assembly and test.
Commercial Ancillary Products
COM DEV has supplied space qualified microwave ancillary hardware since the company's inception. We have developed and refined all the necessary skills and disciplines needed for complete in-house design, qualification, manufacturing and testing.
COM DEV’s ancillary product line includes a wide range of filters, couplers, circulators and terminations operating from UHF to Ka frequency bands. Our custom design and production manufacturing tools reduce program risk and schedule. This allows us to offer unsurpassed reliability, highly competitive schedules and superior performance.
All ancillary products produced at COM DEV undergo extensive on-site environmental testing. Each device is tested to full random vibration in three axes with multiple thermal cycles to its non-operating survival temperature. Ancillary circulators and loads intended for high power applications are also 100% high power tested in representative hot operating temperatures and subjected to the worst case fault condition.
Such extensive testing guarantees that our ancillary products are both compliant to the specification and trouble-free throughout their 15-plus year life.
