Description

Photonis Defense, Inc. manufactures a variety of millimeter wave traveling wave tubes in the frequency range of 18 to 40 GHz. Most tubes cover standard waveguide bandwidths while others are optimized for smaller bands of interest. The tubes are helix-type and are made using the industry standard of metal – ceramic construction for severe environmental conditions. MM Wave Traveling Wave Tubes also utilized rare earth periodic permanent magnets for power-free focusing. This combination creates a rugged, light weight device suitable for military airborne or ground-based systems. Photonis offers a selection of fully developed TWT products and can modify or create a new device to meet your specific requirements.
