Traveling wave tubes (TWT) are by far the most widely produced microwave tube at Thales. Over the last 60 years, the TWT has demonstrated remarkable performance and an ability to adapt to most microwave applications. With the advent of the digital battlefield, electronic warfare is taking a major role in all defense systems. Our microwave sources are at the heart of this changeover, and continue to provide the power amplification needed for the military radar systems that are key to peacekeeping and to protecting and supporting our armed forces in all their missions.
We’re ready to deliver solutions for your new projects, or help retrofit current systems. Furthermore, we guarantee the production continuity of all products to ensure the long-term operational availability of your defense systems, including the new generation of military surveillance and intelligence systems. These new systems demand complete, compact and powerful solutions – in which Thales’s electron tubes and power amplifiers play an important role.
