(Mission Viejo, CA-August 23, 2021) MPT today announced the award of a contract to develop and deliver multiple units of a phased array for 5G systems. The deliverable is the phased array, transmit/receive modules, digital signal processing, and optical Ethernet data transfer. In addition, the unit will conform to the O-RAN specification. The array will operate in the Sub6G band and will cover the major bands that are used domestically in the USA as well as internationally.

Phased arrays are a critically important technology for 5G systems. In fact, they are essential to achieve the performance goals established by domestic and international government agencies. Phased arrays allow 5G radio units to steer antenna beams in the direction of users and to track users as they move.

“This contract win further expands the MPT product mix into antennas for 5G systems and builds on our phased array product offerings,” said Dr. Rick Sturdivant, President of MPT. MPT phased array solutions allows for execution on this wireless terrestrial solution in addition to its satellite and radar phased array business. “Market analysis predicts that the 5G infrastructure market will grow to $80B(US) by 2027, so this is a great opportunity for MPT,” added Dr. Sturdivant.


MPT specializes in phased arrays. It helps wireless and aerospace companies with their phased arrays using antenna AND electronics. MPT provides solutions from 0.5 to 50GHz. Its array solutions are appropriate for communication systems such as 5G and satellites as well as radar systems. For more information, visit
