TMD celebrates 20th Anniversary at DSEI 2015 with its latest, most advanced products on show
See state of the art, solid state and TWT based microwave power modules for the defence and national security market – and more all on Stand S3-255, ADS UK Pavilion
Following its recent 20th anniversary celebration in June of its highly successful MBO (Management Buy Out) from Thorn EMI Electronics in 1995, TMD Technologies Limited (TMD) will be showcasing a range of its most advanced products for the defence and national security market at DSEI 2015 – underlining the company’s now firmly established position as a world leader in the supply of specialised transmitters, amplifiers, microwave power modules (MPMs), high voltage power supplies and microwave tubes for radar, EW, communications, EMC HIRF testing, and other laboratory applications.
“DSEI is a key event for TMD, and something to really look forward to. It is the largest of its kind and thus allows us to connect with our global network of customers and representatives. Additionally we find more new contacts at DSEI than any other trade exhibition, and being part of the ADS UK Pavilion – with its excellent facilities – is a huge bonus,” said Dave Brown, TMD’s Managing Director.
“We are also looking forward to Defence Secretary Michael Fallon’s keynote speech. As a hi-tech design and manufacturing SME, we have been particularly interested in his remarks, reported recently in the media, expressing his support for SMEs and the need to stay ahead of the curve in terms of the supply chain within the defence industry,” continued Dave Brown.
On show: new Solid State MPM optimised for EW/ECM Systems – and TWT based MPMs for UAVs
Employing the latest advances in 0.25 µm GaN MMIC technology, the new PTS6900 solid state microwave power module (MPM) is a fine example of TMD’s proven expertise, not only as a progressive design and manufacturing SME, but also from its inherited knowledge gained from over 70 years at the forefront of RF power innovation.
Providing an excellent performance over the 2-6 GHz range, the ITAR free PTS6900 offers an output power of 150 W and adjustable 55 db gain – plus an instant start up, fast 1 µs mute time, and over 30,000 hours predicted MTBF.
The best of both worlds
In keeping with its philosophy of also continuing to produce state of the art TWT based MPMs operating at high frequency and high power, TMD’s new PTXM Series MPMs,weighing in at typically only 1.7 kg, offer arguably the highest power density obtainable in their class!
With their very compact and low weight design – and operating from 4.5 to 18 GHz with output powers up to 140 W – the units are ideal for UAVs.
Also on show at DSEI will be instrumentation TWT and solid state amplifiers for radar/EW simulation and training and for EMC HIRF testing.
New company video
Showcased on TMD’s stand at DSEI, and soon available on the company’s website,will be a new TMD company video, currently being filmed in partnership with Siemens(who supply our CAD software) and Skilstream. TMD Benefits from Sharing in Growth (SiG) – the Government initiative for Selected UK Aerospace Civil and Defence Manufacturing Suppliers
The SiG team at TMD – discussing key areas of efficiency improvement.
TMD has already moved on to the second phase of its SiG programme – the successful and innovative government funded initiative introduced to boost trade by raising the competitive capability of carefully appraised manufacturing suppliers in the UK aerospace industry.
Since the start of the first phase last year, SiG consultants have been engaging with TMD staff and carrying out analysis of all relevant aspects of the company’s business – focussing on not only better efficiency, but right through to increased ability to attract new customers and markets.
Said TMD’s Managing Director, Dave Brown:
“We were delighted to be chosen for the SiG initiative and are very pleased with the results of the SiG programme so far. We look forward to the next phase, and I am confident that the final outcome will enable us to become more competitive and further expand our business in all our market areas worldwide.”
