MIDDLETOWN, Ohio, 5 June 2015. NuWaves Ltd. in Middletown, Ohio, is introducing the NuPower Xtender 12E06A RF amplifier for S-band orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) radios in unmanned vehicles.

The linear bidirectional amplifier (BDA) measures 4 by 2 by 0.65 inches and has a ruggedized aluminum chassis for use in a wide variety of small aerial, sea, and ground-based platforms, including small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS).

The small and lightweight device is for OFDM transceivers with mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) and/or multi-input and several-output (MIMO) technology.

The Xtender 12E06A bidirectional amplifier operates across the 1980-to-2500 MHz range and generates 12 Watts of RF power for QPSK modulated signals, 6.3 Watts for 16QAM, and 2.5 Watts for 64QAM.
