For decades, manufacturers have trusted Thales to meet their demands for a wide range of tubes covering a large spectrum of frequencies and power outputs. Our tubes have been developed in close collaboration with manufacturers and armed forces and have been tailored to their needs. These amplification solutions are key in the performance of new generation systems but are also paramount in maintaining the operating condition of existing systems.
Traveling Wave Tubes (TWTs) and amplifiers designed by Thales ensure that armed forces can count on the operational availability and high performance of their defence systems, with airborne or surface radars, missile or communication systems. TWTs are the most widely produced microwave tubes at Thales and over the last 60 years, the TWT has demonstrated remarkable performance and an ability to adapt to microwave applications.
We dedicate time and investment towards the research and development that allows us to drive our new innovations. Thales designs and develops quality Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPAs) for a wide variety of military applications.
Intrinsically linked to detection and communication systems, electronic warfare is playing a major role in all defence systems. Our microwave sources are at the heart of this transition, and continue to provide the power amplification and jammers needed for the military systems. These systems are key to protecting and supporting worldwide armed forces in their missions.
We are ready to deliver the solutions for your latest projects, or to aid the retrofit of your existing systems. Furthermore, we guarantee continuity in the production of all products to ensure the long-term operational availability of your defense systems, including the latest generation.
These new systems demand complete, compact and powerful solutions – in which Thales’s electronic tubes and power amplifiers play an important role.
