Airborne Nose Cone Radome of Jaguar Maritime Fighter Aircraft
NAL had designed and developed the airborne nose cone radome of Jaguar maritime fighter aircraft for HAL/IAF. The NAL developed radomes are in service since 2008. Later, the manufacturing technology was transferred to HAL for productionizing the Nose Radome for the Jaguar Aircraft fleet of IAF. The monolithic Nose Radome was fabricated using high performance glass fibre reinforced composite. The novelty of the technology included the development of contoured fabric preforms and closed mould pressure assisted high temperature resin injection. The radome has successfully met the stringent airworthiness qualification standards and is certified by CEMILAC, DRDO.
