VEPA-2W型放大器体积为3.78立方英寸，重136克。它适用于载荷有限的小型无人飞行器。 VEPA-2W型放大器具有39dB的P1dB和30dB增益，能够提供2瓦的数字信号（3瓦的模拟信号）线性功率输出。在离散模式下工作时，能够通过折中放大器的线性度与功率增益来来获取额外的灵活性。VEPA-10W型放大器用于大型平台，需要更远的传输距离。其增益为26-41dB可调，能够提供 10瓦的数字信号（20瓦的模拟信号）线性功率输出。VEPA-2W与VEPA-10W型放大器能工作于军用L、S以及L/S波段，其他波段也可按要求进行定制。
CARLSBAD, Calif., 15 Dec. 2010. Cobham Surveillance in Carlsbad, Calif., is introducing two very efficient power amplifier (VEPA) devices for amplifying RF signals -- the VEPA-2W RF power amplifier for small applications like unmanned systems, and the VEPA 10W for large platforms that require substantial transmission range.
The VEPA-2W amplifier measures 3.78 cubic inches and weighs 136 grams. It is for relatively small unmanned vehicles where payload capacity is limited. With a 39dB P1dB and 30dB gain, the VEPA-2W provides as much as 2 Watts of linear output power for digital signals and can be pushed to compression to provide 3 Watts for analog signals.
Discrete operating modes provide additional flexibility by allowing the operator to adjust to application requirements by trading off between linearity and power efficiency.
The VEPA-10W amplifier is for platforms requiring greater transmission distance. Gain is adjustable from 26-41dB, to provide as much as 10 Watts of linear power for digital signals, or pushed to compression to provide 20 Watts for analog signals.
