Ferrite Microwave Technologies (FMT) manufactures a wide array of high power waveguide components for security & inspection applications. The accelerator-based technology used in these emerging markets shares a critical operating parameter with Medical and Scientific platforms; extremely high peak and average power levels that must be properly managed within all potential operating conditions. FMT has ongoing research, development, and testing programs focused on new innovation and developing the next generation of microwave and RF devices within the S, C, and X-band.
Security & Inspection: FMT History
Ferrite has a long history of providing waveguide components for security & inspection. Most electronic security and inspection equipment involves applications from border control, to baggage screening, cargo screening, and more. These systems provide X-ray scanning technology for the inspection of cargo in all areas of transit. Sharing many aspects with High Energy Physics and Oncology accelerator applications, Ferrite’s devices in this market are designed with the primary considerations of low insertion loss, high isolation, and the management of reflections up to 100%. Our components within this marketplace typically fall within the X, C, or S-band.
Scanning, Security & Inspection Components: Technologies
The technology within these markets originated within both the Scientific and Medical marketplaces with many of the primary Medical OEM’s taking the lead in the migration into Scanning Technology. Subsequently many of Ferrite’s Components are employed in the same manner, focusing on the protection (isolation) of power sources from reflected power with minimal insertion loss presented to the system.
Ferrite Microwave Technologies has funded a Research and Development program focused on the development of the next generation of waveguide components for security & inspection.
