LEO User Terminal Radomes
Hydrophobic radomes allow LEO internet to deliver its world-changing connectivity. SHEERGARD® multi-material laminates provide a best-in-class hydrophobic surface that repels water and protects signals.
SHEERGARD® optimizes static contact as well as dynamic and sliding contact angles to actively enhance water runoff and prevent accumulation. LEO User Terminal Radome laminates also have a fully UV-blocking layer, protecting sensitive electronics and ensuring they perform at their best.
Conventional multimaterial laminates can provide standard hydrophobicity, but that does not serve high-frequency LEO User Terminal Radomes well. To preserve signal integrity, SHEERGARD® laminates combine a hydrophobic surface with fluoropolymer and engineered solutions that actually repel water. Static contact as well as dynamic and sliding contact angles are all optimized for water run off, and this is combined with an effective UV blocking layer. This prevents water, snow and ice from affecting the radome – even under extreme environmental conditions.
