AFCEA West 2015 Week: Show Preview

by Jaymie Murray 6. February 2015 09:24

AFCEA West 2015 starts on Tuesday, February 10th, and API will be exhibiting a range of products from our Power and Microwave lines. Here's a preview of what you can expect to see at booth #1943.

 

Tactical Power Supply (TPS) SolutionThe TPS75, a 75 Amp COTS tactical power supply, supports power-hungry applications, such as RF and mobile networks, while eliminating the necessity for tactical vehicle-based power, significantly reducing TOC for military vehicles. 

AC SMARTStart® 3-Phase Power Distribution UnitsThe 3 Phase AC SMARTStart provides power control and distribution for high powered applications. AC SMARTStarts are configurable devices with remotely managed power sequencing and fault management. Remote monitoring reduces the threat of downtime by avoiding unintended power interruptions. 

Power Entry Panel (PEP)The Power Entry Panel (PEP) is a 10KW AC power panel with an automatic transfer switch made to seamlessly transfer from vehicle power to generator or community power. Designed for Command Post Platforms and other derivatives to distribute onboard vehicle power as well as shore power, the PEP ensures reliable power to critical communications and telemetry equipment with minimal downtime and optimal performance.

Power AmplifiersAPI Technologies’ wide bandwidth and high reliability Power Amplifiers operate up to 26 GHz, with output levels from 500mW to 1Kw. Our Power Amplifier products support critical communication requirements for both commercial and military applications.

Wireless Communications FiltersAPI Technologies is a leading manufacturer of high performance filter products for the wireless telecom industry, with expertise in co-location solutions, wireless site development, spectrum clearing, and communication up-link / down-link systems.

AFCEA West 2015 Week: TPS75 Tactical Power Supply

by Jaymie Murray 2. February 2015 08:39

At this year's AFCEA West, the premier conference and exposition for emerging systems, platforms, and technologies that impact US Navy Sea Service operations in the Asia-Pacific region, API's Power team will showcase our full line of power solutions. All this week on the API blog, we will be highlighting the full range of products and solutions that will be on display at booth #1943 February 10-12 at the San Diego Convention Center.

 

One of the many products highlighted is the TPS75 Tactical Power Supply. Specifically designed for use in the harsh environments often encountered by the military, the TPS75 is a 75 Amp commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tactical power supply that provides critical power when it is needed the most. The TPS75 meets MIL-STD 810 and MIL-STD 461 standards, and eliminates the necessity for tactical vehicle-based power, significantly reducing the total cost of ownership for military vehicles. Powerful and portable, the TPS75 features an integrated battery charger designed to charge vehicle batteries, remote monitoring and control, an available roll cage, and watertight construction which allows it to be placed in harsh environments such as standing water, rain, and blowing sand. 

 

 

By eliminating run time to support powering fielded special ops equipment, the TPS75 reduces fuel consumption and wear and tear on vehicles, and allows vehicles to be deployed elsewhere while the TPS75 distributes power to mission critical equipment from a generator or local shore/community power. The TPS75 is also significantly quieter than the loud vehicles that can be shut off while the TPS75 charges network equipment, making it an excellent solution for simulation and training environments.

My MTT-S 2014 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) Highlights

by Tara Condon 26. May 2014 13:19

Now that IMS 2014 is only a few days away, the team is rushing to put the finishing touches on an event that has been months in the making.  As a leader in RF/microwave and microelectronics technology, IMS and October’s European Microwave Week are major events for us – our Super Bowls, if you will. It is at these events, and in the time in between, that we will launch many of our new products.

My first experience as both attendee and exhibitor was IMS 2012 in Montreal, ON. For API Technologies, it was a banner year, as it marked the first time all of our RF/microwave product lines would be shown together, in a single location. Historically speaking, customers had known us for our respected, legacy brands including Spectrum Microwave, CMT Filters, and C-MAC Aerospace (formerly Cobham MAL). It was at this event we first got to show the full breadth of API Technologies’ products to customers, journalists, and our industry peers. 

Today things are a bit different, but no less exciting. Since that time, the API Technologies product line has evolved and expanded to include system-level ready solutions, subsystems, and advanced modules, including our Active Antenna Array Unit (AAAU) for AESA radar, GaN based power amplifiers, and Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMA), high temperature electronics,  and optical data bus products. We have also added new applications and expanded the use of our technology in commercial aviation, commercial wireless, satellites, and industrial products, which introduced a whole new group of customers to our company and our capabilities.

All of this brings me to this year’s event. So, what am I looking forward to at IMS 2014 in Tampa? Here’s my personal highlight reel:

  • Technology Exchanges:  I won’t give you any spoilers, but… we will be rolling out several new products at IMS. (For the latest, I recommend Following API Technologies on LinkedIn or Twitter.) Our engineers have done outstanding work and I love watching these team members engage with the design engineers who visit our booth. Ultimately our products are being used to drive the success of their projects, so it is great to see these technology exchanges taking place in real time. 
  • Meeting with Our Reps and Distributors: IMS offers us the opportunity to engage with our (outstanding!) sales representatives and distributors and train them on our new products. They are a dynamic group of professionals and look forward to hearing their feedback.
  • Interesting Events: We will have a front row seat to the inaugural episode of Wireless Design & Development’s “WDD Live”, which will be filmed in the API Technologies booth. (The topic? Connected cars!). Also, we will be defending our title at the Best of RF & Microwave awards. Last year API Technologies took home the award for Best Custom Solutions.
  • Social Interaction: Activity at IMS isn’t limited to the great technical sessions or trade show floor; a lot of the interaction takes place on Twitter. @apitechnologies has been a very engaged participant in years’ past and I expect this year will be no different. 

There is much more to say, but there is still so much more to do. I will leave you with this:

See you at IMS 2014!
