Commercial Nose Radomes

Keeping Passengers Connected

General Dynamics is capable of designing and manufacturing single and dual-band, low-reflection radomes for optimum performance of various radar systems, such as weather radar. These capabilities extend to the development and production of multi-band radomes that provide excellent cross-polarization discrimination and transmission performance across X, Ku, K, and Ka-Bands for SATCOM applications.

Our Radome Design Approach

General Dynamics collaborates closely with our customers to choose the best design, process and materials to fit their needs for cost and performance.

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. These tools can be applied early in the design process to aid in radome shape selection trade studies.

When radome performance matters, General Dynamics’ design experience, analytic and measurement tools, and manufacturing know-how provide for low-risk, high performance radome solutions.

Key Capabilities:

  • Electrical (RF) design/analysis
  • Structural design/analysis
  • Lightning protection design
  • Mechanical design
  • Tool design
  • Material and process engineering
  • High precision machining
  • Radio frequency (RF) testing
  • Non-destructive testing (NDT)

 

In-Flight Entertainment & Connectivity

Our extensive experience allows us to apply real world knowledge to the design, qualification and manufacturing processes for successful overall system performance and minimal life cycle cost. General Dynamics has supported multiple commercial programs in obtaining STCs and holds an FAA Repair Station Certification for IFEC radomes.
