Saint-Gobain has delivered the first large nose radome for the Bell 525 helicopter that will make first flight by summer. The very large nose includes a long avionics fairing and a forward radome nose section that is built with SHEERGARD materials that assures the best radar performance for this large transport helicopter. The Bell 525 ‘Relentless’ helicopter is a medium lift helicopter that can carry up to twenty passengers or be used for corporate or other para-public applications which require a large capacity helicopter. Saint-Gobain also delivers SHEERGARD radomes for the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey helicopter program.
