Radant specializes in development of radomes for a wide range of applications,
with sizes ranging from two inches up to fifteen feet in diameter. Designs
used depend on the specific system application and take into account parameters
such as operational frequency and RF performance needs, structural and
environmental requirements, and affordability.
For a radome less than ten
feet in diameter, typically a one piece, free-standing design can be implemented
which maintains lower system sidelobes and losses than a frame-supported
design, with better structural integrity.
For system frequencies in the
microwave band or above, fabrication tolerances become critical in the
RF performance of the radome. Our autoclave molding capabilities allow
maintaining much tighter wall tolerances than can be obtained with other
methods, providing better radome performance. Radant can provide RF, environmental
and structural testing support for any government or commercial program,
and is an FAA-approved radome repair station.
