SHEERGARD™ sandwich radomes are rigid, self-supporting structures designed to protect various communication systems. They operate as a transparent electromagnetic protective structure for systems with frequencies up to 12GHz (X-Band). SHEERGARD™ sandwich radomes are the first of their kind to offer a non-delaminating, permanently hydrophobic panel construction that requires minimal maintenance to remain fully operational over their 20 year service life.
The technological advancements were developed and validated through the United States Air Force‘s SBIR program which focused on removing the ongoing maintenance and repair costs currently associated with the radome industry. The technology was certified through rigorous testing and full scale prototyping to ensure the demands were met. Click here to learn more about this SBIR program.
