Dow-Key® Microwave will feature the latest in miniature electro-mechanical microwave switches, waveguide switches and switch assemblies at the 34th Space Symposium, Booth 1328, in Colorado Springs, CO on April 16-19 at the Broadmoor Hotel.

This year, in addition to our space qualified 509H miniaturized PCB mounted electro-mechanical microwave switches, Dow-Key Microwave will feature its expanded series of waveguide switches, switch block assemblies and ground-based switch matrices.  In support of the changing demands of both military and commercial satellite systems, Dow-Key will be showcasing our smaller and lighter products as well as those designed to address higher power, 1.5 kW and more, higher vibration, over 50Gs, and higher frequencies, up to 75GHz.

According to Alan Anderson, General Manager of Dow-Key Microwave, “over our nearly 50 years in the Space market, Dow-Key has seen a lot of ups and downs as well as fundamental shifts in the Satellite industry.  Case in point, the latest wave of miniaturized satellites, which our new smaller and lighter products are perfectly suited for.  We’re pleased to see an increase in new Satellite companies and projects, resulting in a lot of opportunities for Dow-Key Microwave and the entire Dover Microwave Products Group.”
