FSS Technology for Aerospace Applications
Frequency selective surfaces (FSS) are widely used as spatial filter for the design of absorbers, radomes, dichroic plates, and reflector antennas in the microwave and millimeter wave frequency regime. In such applications, FSS structures are mainly employed to enhance the performance of the device within the specified band and reduce the radar signature outside the band. CEM team has been involved for last one decade for the design and development of radome, antennas, and RAS using FSS technology for aerospace application.
- Capable of designing FSS based
- High performance low observable radomes
- Low observable antennas
