Terrasat offers a family of integrated BUC/SSPAs with unbeatable performance in C, X, Ku and Ka-bands. C-band IBUC is available in 5W to 400W models, X-band is available in 5W to 200W, Ku-band in 4W to 200W versions and DBS- and Ka-Band units up to 25W.

In the last few years L-band Block Upconverter (BUC) technology has superseded the 70/140 MHz RF Transceiver (RFT) model in satcom earth station deployments. The reasons are straightforward: L-band architecture simplifies earth station design and installation while increasing overall reliability – at a significantly reduced cost. BUC's have grown from their VSAT beginnings into full-featured RF platforms for critical applications.
