Radomes for Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS)
Saint-Gobain has run a variety of integration projects for EFVS Weather Radomes on business jets like Gulfstream G650 and G550 and for the military on Lockheed C-130.
We own a variety of STCs and have developed technologies to support the EFVS integration like the mechanism to drain the condensation away from the frequency window.
Our proprietary design also allows us to upgrade the transmissivity of the Radome from its original design without interfering with the economical aspect of the Radome.
