Weather Radome

Weather Radomes are an essential aspect of flight safety. They cover the radar that provides the pilot with weather information and thus help them make the best route decision for passenger safety.

This sometimes means going off-course hundreds of miles to avoid severe weather conditions. If the information provided by the radar is degraded, it can compromise aircraft safety and fuel consumption.

Saint-Gobain Aerospace Radome designs can reach Class-A transmissivity in the RTCA/DO-213A definition letting the antenna perform at its best performance.
