The head of Space Equipment at Airbus DS stated that SynerTech company and Russian Space Systems is planning to make up to 50 solid-state power amplifiers within the next year.

SynerTech company, a joint enterprise of Airbus Defence and Space (DS) aerospace company and Russian Space Systems, is planning to make up to 50 solid-state power amplifiers within the next year, Jean-Pierre Domenget, the head of Space Equipment at Airbus DS, told Sputnik.

"At the moment, we are working toward between 30 or 50 solid-state power amplifiers. We are interested in quality rather than quantity. A solid-state power amplifier is a commonly used item, so it is possible to consider increasing the production based on demand," Domenget said, when asked how many solid-state power amplifiers had already been made in Russia and how many were planned for 2018.

A solid-state power amplifier is a key component of transmitters used in space navigation, communications and remote sensing. Amplifiers increase the power of a signal on spacecraft.

Domenget told Sputnik earlier in the day that Airbus DS was expanding its cooperation with Russia.
