DoD DMC Adaptive Radome Diagnostic System
Our integration partner Compass Technology Group’s Adaptive Radome Diagnostic System (ARDS) features in a video about the Air Force ManTech program. The Air Force is able to test the effectiveness of radome repairs, ensuring they are fully operational before taking the aircraft back into the field. This reduces the need to work further on the radome repairs after taking the aircraft out. Keeping the radomes functioning properly is crucial to the safety of the pilots in these aircraft. At time marker 1:48, you can see the ARDS in action with the 1-Port VNA as a part of the system capturing the reflectivity measurements of the radome.
