(Mission Viejo, CA-September 6, 2021) MPT today announced the award of a new contract to develop low noise blocks (LNBs) for commercial Ku-Band satcom terminals.

Low Noise Blocks (LNBs) are a critically important component in most any satellite communication system. They provide the amplification and noise performance that allow the antennas to achieve the required G/T which is a major performance metric for satellite ground stations.

“This contract win allows MPT to continue to build on its LNB capability,” said Dr. Rick Sturdivant, President of MPT. The contract calls for the delivery of LNB units in 2022. Dr. Sturdivant added, “Our LNB products and capability cover from C-Band to Ka-Band, and this contract win is for Ku-Band LNBs.”

The LNB business of MPT is part of its module products which include LNBs, BUCs, Transmit/Receive Modules, Up/Down Converters, and custom modules.
