For Communications and Navigation

When space and weight are at a premium and you need survivability combined with great RF performance, the answer is our fifth- generation low observable antenna. Integrated multifunction apertures and low radar cross section features are efficient and affordable while solving installation problems. Currently, we’re building the communications and navigation antenna suite for the F-35/Lightning II. For next generation aircraft and weapons, we’re working on emerging system technology that’s more efficient, reduces size, and withstands higher temperatures.
