On the left is the AR-50 and on the right is the AR-50-SE .

AR Modular RF product line of tactical radio booster amplifiers are lightweight, extremely durable and easy to use. The AR-50 and the AR-50SE are proven products that boost the range of communications of tactical radios in operational environments while going further and doing more.

The AR-50, a 50-watt booster amplifier, passed 40G Shock Tests and 4G Vibration Tests, proving that it can keep providing clear, dependable multi-communication networking options in extreme battle conditions where shock and vibration can prevent ordinary booster amps from doing their job.

  • The AR-50 delivers 50 watts of power and covers the 30 MHz – 512 MHz frequency band.
  • The AR-50SE spans the 30 MHz – 88 MHz band.

Ordinary tactical booster amplifiers may be fine when everything is smooth and easy. But when the pressure is on, you can count on an AR-50 product line of tactical booster amplifiers. In a helicopter, a jet, a tank, or when you’re engaged in combat, AR-50 booster amplifiers absorb shock & vibration to keep providing clear, dependable multi-communication networking options.

These AR Modular RF booster amplifiers are extremely simple to operate, virtually foolproof. They are fully automatic, which is critical in the field, where troops are often engaged in multiple operations. Most important, these booster amplifiers extend the range of communications when needed most. In extreme conditions. In hostile environments. In situations where communication is critical.


AR Modular RF Model AR-50 is a portable, lightweight, RF sensing, band-switching, RF booster amplifier for multi-band operation compatible with VHF/UHF/LOS/SATCOM tactical radio equipment supporting legacy, proprietary and emerging waveforms. Operation covers 30-to-512MHz using high-speed auto-switching filters for harmonic suppression and is SINCGARS and HAVEQUICK compatible. The amplifier is designed with a DC/DC converter to support a wide range of input voltages while not sacrificing output power. Built-in protections guard against antenna mismatch, over-temperature and accidental input power polarity reversal. Built to last, the AR-50 is packaged in a rugged, IP67 rated, 2-piece aluminum enclosure. Optional fan kit, shock mount kit and interface coaxial cables are available.


The Model AR-50SE is a fully automatic band-switching RF booster amplifier for multi-band Tactical Radio equipment employing legacy, proprietary and emerging waveforms. The amplifier, which is a sub-banded version of our JITC certified AR-50 multi- band product, covers the frequency band of 30-88 MHz using high speed auto switching filters to assure harmonic suppression and is SINCGARS compatible. The amplifier includes power supply Voltage Spike Suppression, a DC/DC convertor for wide DC input range, RF sensing, T/R switching, Automatic Level Control (ALC), three automatically switched harmonic filter bands, and protection against antenna mismatch and over-temperature. Protection against accidental polarity reversal is provided. The amplifier comprises a rugged 3-piece aluminum case.
