X-Band Coaxial Isolators formed the bulk of the recent delivery of flight model devices destined for use aboard a large space based Radar program.

The X-Band Coaxial Isolators operate beyond the normal 8.0-12.0 GHz range making these amongst the broadest fractional bandwidth, solid body X-Band Coaxial Isolators TRAK has delivered to date and marks the completion of first of several scheduled contracts which include high power waveguide, microstrip, and Coaxial topologies ranging from S to K-Bands marking this as one of the most comprehensive space programs TRAK has been involved with.

Ultimately TRAK will supply the program with 21 designs and 1000 FMs t0 5 customers.
