The PolyU Aviation Services Research Centre (ASRC) has developed a device to test the transmission efficiency of radomes. Transmission efficiency is a key performance parameter for radomes as they must be transparent to radar waves to avoid interfering with the radar signals of weather systems.
Currently, the industry relies on a radar antenna and a large anechoic chamber to test for transmission efficiency after damage to the surface of a radome has been repaired. However, the industry wants a smaller and less expensive test jig.
With over 80 years of proud tradition and ranking among the world’s top 100 institutions, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) aspires to be a leading university with world-class research and education.
PolyU is a home for educating thinkers, discoverers, innovators and communicators in delivering positive impact. We are committed to nurturing tomorrow’s leaders today, through a holistic education that provides graduates unrivaled placements to thrive in communities, industries and businesses.
