HMC1049 Pulsed operation

There is an application for HMC1049 for pulsed input with the following pulse power and durations:

+32dBm for 100ns

Followed by +20dBm for 50us

<-50dBm for at least 285us.

Although the average power (-36dBm) is very low the peak power of +32 dBm for 20 ns is much higher than the specified 18 dBm for 285 us higher by 2 dB.

1. Would  this pulsed  condition  damage the amplifier?

2. Is there any other available data for pulsing this amplifier?
