X-Band T/R module for AESA applications

This four-channel transmit-receive module is designed for use in an X band active electrically scanned array (AESA).  This unit is suitable for use in all time-domain duplexed systems (i.e. radar, terrestrial and space communications, etc.).

As Technology Advances...

As technology advances, the demand for high-performance and reliable electronics has grown exponentially. One area where this is particularly important is in the aerospace and defense industries. AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) technology has become increasingly prevalent in these fields due to its ability to rapidly scan and detect multiple targets simultaneously.

At the heart of AESA technology is the X-Band T/R module. These modules play a critical role in the performance of AESA systems, as they provide the necessary signal processing and transmission capabilities needed for the accurate and timely detection of targets.

X-Band T/R modules are designed to operate at frequencies between 8 GHz and 12 GHz, which is a sweet spot for AESA applications. These modules are used to transmit and receive signals in AESA radar systems, making them an essential component for a wide range of applications, including military surveillance, air traffic control, weather tracking, and more. 

One of the key benefits of X-Band T/R modules is their ability to operate in harsh environments. These modules are often exposed to extreme temperatures, vibration, and electromagnetic interference, and must continue to perform reliably under these conditions. To meet these demands, X-Band T/R modules are designed with ruggedized enclosures and advanced cooling systems to ensure long-term performance in even the harshest environments.

Another advantage of X-Band T/R modules is their versatility. These modules can be customized to meet the specific needs of different applications, with options for various output power levels, frequency bands, and modulation schemes. This flexibility allows for optimized performance in a range of scenarios, making X-Band T/R modules an ideal choice for a variety of AESA applications.

Orban Microwave has a modern, fully equipped ISO 9001:2018 certified facility where we do product development, prototyping, testing, and qualification. (Learn More)


We know that our customers have needs beyond standard products, and we take pride in the fact that Orban Microwave is whom you come to when your application needs to go beyond the ordinary. Our success relies upon world-class engineering expertise, a vast library of RF building block designs, simulation tools, and rapid prototyping capabilities. Our business has been meticulously thought out to reduce design timelines and deliver on budget.

Here at Orban Microwave, our model is to design ‘at cost’, acting as a true partner with our customers, profiting only once we’ve entered production with the final product. Unlike traditional design companies who part ways at the critical stage of production, we retain responsibility for the entire product lifecycle - all the way to integration into the final system. Since we are not a catalog manufacturer that depends on high-volume production, your custom order is our only priority. Have an idea or a specific product in mind? Let Orban Microwave Products help you achieve something extraordinary. 

Orban Microwave has developed and will maintain a Quality Management System that conforms to the requirements of ISO 9001:2018 which enables us to provide consistently high quality in all work we undertake. (Learn More)
