AR-20 Booster Amplifier,

The World's Smallest, Most Compact

20-Watt Man-Packable Amplifier

Troops need clear, dependable, lightweight, long-range communications equipment. So when AR Modular RF designed the AR-20 portable booster amplifier, it was a top priority to keep it small, lightweight and compact.

The company succeeded not only in keeping it small, making it highly reliable and easy to operate, and what they created is the smallest 20-watt portable amplifier on the market.

The AR-20 man-packable booster amplifier covers the 30 - 512 MHz frequency range with available LOS and SATCOM. It delivers a full 20 watts of RF output and has a wide range DC input supporting battery and vehicle power sources. It supports most radios including AN/PRC-154 Rifleman, AN/PRC-152, AN/PRC-148, and others. The unit, which weighs only 2 lbs., operates with multiple waveforms such as AM, FM, HPW, SINCGARS, IW, ANW2, SRW, WNW, ASCM, and more.

Two models are available. Model AR-20 includes UHF SATCOM band LNA. Model AR-20B does not include LNA. Higher power versions are available, AR-50 with 50 Watts and AR-75 with 75 Watts, and the AR-125R rack mounted with 125 Watts output. See the full military products range here
