General Dynamics is a trusted leader in the design and manufacturing of high-performance Ku, K, Ka, Tri-band and Quad-Band Radomes for commercial and military aircraft. With 65,000+ produced on 45 different platforms, General Dynamics has more Multi-band radomes in flight today that are providing more bandwidth and faster speeds for passengers and flight crews than any other company.
We have delivered tens of thousands of radomes for more than 25 military aircraft platforms and pods in the areas of Airlift, Bomber, Cargo, Electronic Warfare, Fighter, Reconnaissance and Strike.
We develop and produce nose radomes for large commercial aircraft and business jets, as well as Fuselage and Tail Mounted Radomes for the In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) market.
Solving Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) Design Challenges
Designing low-profile radomes for Electronically Scanned Array (ESA) or phased array antennas introduces new challenges.
For over two decades we have designed radomes for the most advanced Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA).
The Most Multi-band Radomes in Flight
General Dynamics has over 70 years of experience designing and producing a wide array of radomes for both military and commercial platforms, including aircraft nose, wing, tail, fuselage and pods. Radome applications include fire control, weather, data link, SATCOM, electronic counter-measures, electronic warfare and other specialized uses.
We are a world leader in aircraft fire control nose radomes and radome technology enabling maximum performance of Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar.
Radome Design and Testing
Our extensive experience with high performance radomes allows us to apply a broad range of real world knowledge to the design, qualification and manufacturing processes.
General Dynamics collaborates closely with our customers to choose the best design, process and materials to fit their needs for cost and performance. When radome performance matters, our design experience, analytic and measurement tools, and manufacturing know-how provide for low-risk, high performance radome solutions.
Employing an extensive analytical tool set, General Dynamics is capable of coupling accurate RF performance predictions with FEA structural analysis to ensure a high-integrity, optimal solution for your system needs.
