We often have customers who need a custom product fast, and at high volume. Here is one of those products. This week we delivered a series of about a 150 radome covers that were custom designed, manufactured, machined, painted and finished within a short turnaround window. While we can do large, complex structures with all the rigid requirements needed for space applications, we can also handle a fast turnaround, simple programs that can meet baseline technical requirements affordably.
Rock West worked in close collaboration with this customer, from the initial concept to full production run. We went through multiple design iterations to achieve RF performance and manufacturability. Several prototypes were created and performance tested before the design was finalized. Using in-house machining and painting capability helped to keep schedule short and low risk.
Radomes are an area of specialization for Rock West. You can read more on our Radomes page.
