Ku-Band Belly Radome for P-3 Aircraft
Military. Ku-Band Belly Radome for Naval Research Lab’s P-3 aircraft.
Produce a Ku-Band Radome for the P-3 Aircraft. Qualify to Navy’s strict flight safety and damage tolerance requirements. The size requirement of the hardware was 6’ diameter x 3’ deep.
We executed a full-service structural analysis, material property testing and qualification determination and documentation, in addition to RF design and the related tooling. We fabricated the tooling and then produced the radome. We coordinated with our customer, the US Navy, and a 3rd contractor to ensure the qualification approach, structural analysis and aircraft interface met the needs of all parties.
