Military and Commercial High-Performance Composite Radomes
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.
The Most Multi-band Radomes in Flight
General Dynamics Mission Systems produces a wide array of radomes ranging from fighter and cargo aircraft noses and other specialized military applications, commercial nose weather radomes and radomes for the in-flight entertainment and connectivity market. General Dynamics is 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
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.
U.S. Air Force search and rescue teams used General Dynamics' HOOK3 Combat Survival Radio during a simulated rescue mission to locate a NASA crew in the water after an aborted launch.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – General Dynamics Mission Systems received a contract from the U.S. Air Force to supply more than 140 CM-300/350 V2 Air Traffic Control (ATC) radios, replacing existing ATC radios currently operating at U.S. Air Force in Europe (USAFE) locations.
For more than 70 years, General Dynamics engineers have been developing and producing radomes – the protective, exterior shells covering sensitive equipment such as radar, navigation and satellite system antennas typically mounted on aircraft nosecones.
