Satellite dishes have become a core target market. The need for large structures with surface accuracy of 0.25mm RMS or better poses a significant engineering challenge on a finished composite structure.
We have spent a number of years in R&D to develop large and highly accurate tooling methods. This is critical to ensure the finished parts achieve the accuracies required. We have also pioneered in-mould surfacing solutions to improve reflectivity at frequencies above 8GHz.
The size of dishes we have produced ranges from small portable systems that fold up to very large multi-part dishes operating at KU-Band, KA-Band, X-Band and S-Band.
