The AR Modular RF Model KMW2030 is an AM/FM-UHF/VHF DAMA amplifier for signals in the 30 to 512 MHz frequency range, with an optional external low-noise pre-amplifier for use in the UHF SatCom mode.
Operation of the amplifier requires only MODE and POWER LEVEL selection. The amplifier provides transmit power on the UHF SatCom, UHF Line-of-Sight and VHF LOS bands. The amplifier supports the UHF SatCom band for both Mil-Std 188-182, 5kHz and Mil-Std 188-183, 25 kHz DAMA and 188-181, Non-DAMA, with or without the optional external preamplifier, and supports both HPW and Mil-Std 181B waveforms. PIN-DIODE T/R switching ensures DAMA/HPW switching time requirements and UHF CO-SITE filtering eliminates interference from adjacent transmitters.
The amplifier is protected against antenna mismatch, over-temperature, excessive current draw, high VSWR, and DC power mismatch. LED indicators show output power, VSWR, temperature and input drive fault conditions. External connections are limited to RF input; RF output, DC power, and RS232 control lines.
The amplifier is self-contained, splash proof, and designed for military ground, vehicular and aircraft tactical operations. The amplifier is available in matte black only. The optional external pre-amplifier is waterproof and is powered via a single RF cable.
