V-22 tiltrotor avionics upgrade uses tactical booster amplifier from AR Modular

Posted by John Keller

BOTHELL, Wash., 9 May 2013. Avionics experts upgrading the U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft needed a booster amplifier to help increase the fixed-wing aircraft's ability to defeat enemy missiles. They found their solution from AR Modular RF in Bothell, Wash.

AR has been selected as the top choice to upgrade onboard aircraft RF and microwave communications amplifiers aboard a growing fleet of V-22 Osprey aircraft. company officials say. The V-22 can take off and land vertically like a helicopter, and cruise at speeds of a fixed-wing aircraft.

The latest technology of the AR-50 tactical booster amplifier increases the V-22 Osprey abilities to defeat air-to-air and ground-to-air threats by enhancing the communications capabilities, AR officials say.

The V-22 Osprey multirole combat aircraft is a tiltrotor airframe that combines its vertical performance of a helicopter with the high speed and extended range of existing fixed-wing aircraft.

The AR Modular AR-50 RF tactical booster amplifier is JITC-certified and comes in a compact, lightweight package that exceeds military shock and vibration requirements even when mounted directly to the airframe, AR officials say.
