Products & Services
Radar Absorbing Materials
Radar absorbing materials and structures are designed to absorb radar waves and convert them to heat. Because these radar waves are not returned, radar absorbing materials (RAM) and radar absorbing structures (RAS) provide a reduced signature for detection.
Horn Antennas
Horn antennas are used for the transmission and reception of microwave signals. They are usually fed by waveguides.
Microwave Tubes
Microwave tubes are lamps that produce microwaves.
Radar Systems and Products
Radar systems and radar products have synchronized transmitters and receivers that send radio waves and detect their reflections from objects, surfaces or sub-surface structures.
Magnetrons are high-powered vacuum tubes used to generate microwave signals. Products include cavity magnetrons and sputtering magnetrons.
