Radomes can be complex and expensive structures depending on the application. Mass producing these composite structures can be expensive and difficult.
The customer requested development of a durable, low cost and easy-to-mass-produce radome to house 5G transmission equipment hidden within city lamp poles. The previous ABS solution degraded too much over time and began to crack.
Rock West utilized thin composite fiberglass material bonded to aluminum caps that fit within the lamp posts. This provided for a seamless (hidden) 5G radome that met cost, RF transmission and durability requirements.
