Product Documents

UHF – L-Band – S-Band – C-Band

AMP’s VST1 Series 1.7 cubic inch video transmitters offer innovative features and high quality packaging with up to two Line/Mic audio or RS232/TTL data subcarriers and up to 2 Watts output power.

VST1 transmitters may be configured with fixed RF output powers of 250 mW, 500 mW, 1 Watt, or 2 Watts. Transmitters may be optionally configured with remotely selectable power levels utilizing any of these four power levels. AMP’s proprietary power-leveling circuit ensures level output power over the entire frequency band.

Locally configurable features include carrier frequency, high/low output power, video inversion, subcarrier enable, and subcarrier input type. These features and PA on/off, all power modes, and temperature fold-back characteristics may be configured remotely and assigned to programmable switch presets.

With military telemetry heritage, VST1 transmitters are designed to withstand harsh environments and are ideal for Drones, UAS, UAV, UGV, Military, and other applications requiring efficient, high quality video/audio/data transmission in a compact, rugged package.

VST1 transmitters can be mated to AMP’s HHA1 High Power Amplifier for applications that require higher RF output power.
