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.
Aviation Transponders
Aviation transponders are electronic devices that generate and transmit a signal in response to receiving a radio frequency interrogation for the purposes of identifying aircraft for air traffic control and collision avoidance functions, as well as for IFF (identification friend or foe) military applications.
Weather Radar Systems

Weather radar systems, also called weather surveillance radar and Doppler weather radar, is a type of radar used to locate precipitation, determine precipitation type, and calculate its motion.

Horn Antennas
Horn antennas are used for the transmission and reception of microwave signals. They are usually fed by waveguides.
Radomes are weatherproof enclosures to protect an antenna from the elements. Radomes are more typically used on satellite or microwave antennas, but can be used with any antenna.
