Teledyne MEC is the proven source for mission-critical RF amplification.

With over 50 years' leadership in improving TWT technologies, Teledyne MEC (MEC) provides multi-octave high power TWTs that maximize operational efficiency for Electronic Warfare/Electronic Countermeasure (EW/ECM) systems.


MEC Traveling Wave Tubes protect the Warfighter on virtually all EW/ECM systems.

MEC TWTs are an essential component of RF jammers that automatically defeat or degrade the tracking capability of hostile pulse radar, including surface-to-air and air-to-air radar guided threats. These aircraft protection systems defend the warfighter against ground-based and airborne fire control radar systems and missile threats, supporting diverse missions including strike, high altitude reconnaissance, close air support, and defense interception.
