Ferrite Microwave Technologies portfolio of waveguide components for military & defense radar has developed a global presence over the years. FMT offers a vast library of 3-port and 4-port circulators, isolators, terminations, and directional coupler solutions, all of which have been qualified by end users across the UHF, L, S, C, X, Ku, K, and Ka Bands.
FMT Military & Defense Radar: Overview
FMT components meet all applicable MIL specifications, and all components are fabricated, assembled, and tested in our ISO 9001:2015 Certified manufacturing facility. End users for our waveguide components for military & defense radar include the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, among other domestic and international agencies.
In defense & military radar applications, the environments for waveguide components can vary. FMT components offer high reliability in land-based, mobile, naval, and airborne environments. In such settings, factors include high shock, vibration, and temperature extremes. Many of our units are qualified, including: AWACS, SMART-L, HAWK, ASR-9, TPS-78, TRC-70, and more.
In addition to standalone components, FMT manufactures complete radar platform assemblies incorporating circulators, phase shifters, switches, directional couplers, combining / dividing networks, and terminations. Circulators can be configured to operate as duplexers or isolators into all potential reflections up to and including a full short circuit. Our mission-specific waveguide components for military & defense radar provide rigorous quality control to ensure reliability, durability, and low maintenance.
