Multipactor

Multipactor is the silent killer of high power satellite components. FMC meets the requirements for detecting and observing multipactor events, and has been performing this test since 2004.

FMC can test for multipactor whether the hardware is passive or active microwave. From UHF to Ka Band, FMC can design and fabricate the test setup necessary to perform these sensitive tests.

FMC tests for multipactor using our thermal vacuum chambers and custom hardware. FMC has multiple electron seeding sources to help initiate and multipactor.

FMC has multipactor tested filters, waveguides, isolators, circulators, couplers, adapters and antenna feed components.
