Meggitt Baltimore Inc.
Quality, Production, Design, and Test Engineering
We are a full service composite Radome manufacturer with services ranging from design and manufacturing to testing.
Radome & Composite Design
Meggitt Baltimore has a fully integrated engineering department consisting of electrical engineers, composite engineers, mechanical engineers and manufacturing engineers. All radome designs include analysis and input from all these engineering disciplines and the analysis is performed using our various CAD/CAM/CAE tools.
Meggitt Baltimore uses proprietary electromagnetic code to analyze the radome performance and develop the radome wall construction. NASTRAN is used to perform finite element analysis. Meggitt Baltimore composite engineers have expertise with all composite materials suitable for radome applications. We also use our extensive line of existing military radomes to choose composite radome materials that are optimal for RF performance, qualified for military use, and readily available. Finally, our extensive RF testing capability and anechoic chambers allow us to test transmissivity as part of final part acceptance.
To complement our radome design capability, Meggitt Baltimore can perform complete reverse engineering activities using our FaroArm® CMM. 3D CAD models can be created in SolidWorks or CATIA using scanned data from a master pattern or existing model. The 3D model is then used for analysis and manufacturing.
