SHEERGARDTM air-supported radomes protect antenna systems while providing outstanding electromagnetic transmission performance throughout a broad range of frequencies.
Air-supported radomes are constructed using PTFE coated, high performance fabrics. The fabrics are designed to provide a robust construction that can withstand the toughest environmental conditions.
Fully redundant pressurization systems and controls give SHEERGARD air-supported radomes extremely high reliablity and long-term durability.
Export of Saint-Gobain Air Supported radomes are covered under EAR99 No License Required. This allows easier export of these systems for applications such as Satcom, Military Radars under USML Category XI and Telemetry/Tracking Systems under USML category XV.
Unsurpassed RF Performance
The primary function of a radome is to protect the enclosed antenna system while having minimal effect on the transmission of the electromagnetic signal.
Finite element analysis is applied to a wide range of structures, from simple spheres and electromagnetic windows to custom configurations.
Extreme Environmental Protection
SHEERGARD PTFE coated fabrics have been analyzed and tested for structural application to all environmental conditions.
The materials used for radome fabrication are composites consisting of a woven substrate fabric protected with applied coatings, providing tensile strength and tear resistance.
Low Life-Cycle Cost
The Teflon coating of SHEERGARD materials provides superior life-long hydrophobic performance, so no reapplication of surface finish is ever required.
