Radomes

As a specialist in one-off and short run production composite products, CCI is your preferred supplier for radomes, antenna shrouds, and similar items such as sonar fairings.  Especially if the solution you need is not sitting on a shelf somewhere.

We can manufacture radomes in either cored sandwich construction or single skin composite.  We can even fabricate high quality replacement panels to suit existing radomes from other suppliers.

Our larger cored radomes feature an innovative panel joint that minimizes RF Scattering.   Please contact us to discuss your needs.   A few case studies that showcase our capabilities are described below.

Case Studies

We have built several varieties of radomes for customers in the communications industry. This example is a cored radome 10 feet (3m) in diameter and intended for rooftop or ground mounting.  Built using vacuum resin infusion techniques for the highest quality.

On a larger scale, we built a roof top communications shelter using our foam cored fiberglass flat panel technology.  Note the arched roof for strength and water shedding.  Cable raceways were built directly into the panels.  The panels were bonded together (tongue and groove), not bolted.  The only metal is in the stainless steel door hardware.

We were chosen by a local antenna company to develop fiberglass radomes with fiberglass and foam core backing plates for pole mounting. These composite backing plates weigh a small fraction of that of their steel counterparts.

We have done a series of short production runs of fairings that fit submersed towed sonar equipment.   We developed the tooling based on drawings of the equipment that it had to fit around.
