CPI's Radant Technologies Division has received a contract worth $3 million to develop a satellite communications radome for US military aircraft, the company announced on 11 December.

The wideband 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 systems.

The design and implementation of the radome will be based on the design of a quad-band satellite communications radome that the company first developed and demonstrated in 2014, and has been used to support in-flight entertainment and connectivity systems on commercial transport aircraft.

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.’
