Communication via satellite is one of the prominent and widely used method for transmission of data. It is significant as it provides reliable and uninterrupted communication. Satcom Manpack terminal is light weight and portable equipment used in military applications. The operating frequency and output power delivered is the vital point of concern. Communication in remote areas has to be taken into consideration for better transmission between the end users. The module used in the project is selected from Qorvo with part number TGA2830 which provides higher output power, higher gain and low phase noise. This work focuses on the design and development of S-Band Power Amplifier (PA) module for Satcom Manpack terminal. The PA module is simulated, developed and tested for various performance parameters like output power, phase noise and spurious. It was observed that the results were matching the desired specifications.
