CPI Radant Technologies secure deal for satellite communications radome

The Radant Technologies Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI) has won a contract worth an estimated $3 million to develop a satellite communications radome for a US military airborne platform.

The radome will be compatible with, and enable connectivity with, any wideband satellite communications system, including commercial Ku-band and Ka-band systems and military Ka-band Wideband Global SATCOM (WGS) systems.

The design and implementation of this radome will be based on the patented design of a quad-band satellite communications radome that CPI Radant Technologies Division first developed and demonstrated for a global communications company in 2014.

Subsequently, it was included in the FAA-approved Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) received by that customer in 2016 and has been used to support in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) systems on commercial transport aircraft.

Dr. Jean-Claude Sureau, Director of Business Development at CPI Radant Technologies Division, said: “CPI Radant Technologies Division continues to drive the development of radome technology to support increasingly complex and demanding requirements.  The award of this latest airborne Ku/Ka radome contract further demonstrates our dedication to supporting advanced global connectivity across military and commercial applications.”
