New satcom radome

Porcher Industries has worked with Meggitt, a leading international company specialising in advanced components and sub-systems for the aerospace, defence and energy markets, on the development of a new satcom radome to support the demand for enhanced 5G communication for in-flight connectivity.

Porcher Industries has developed a bespoke glass reinforced thermoplastic material for the base structural component. This composite material solution is designed to deliver high-impact resistance and efficient processing whilst also providing the ability to tune the Dielectric Constant (Dk) for optimizing 5G Air-to-Ground transmission.

Porcher Industries’ latest radome material technology can also be applied in other markets, such as Mobile Telecommunications and Big Data Wireless Networks, enhancing the development of lighter, higher-performing and longer lasting antenna enclosures, the manufacturer adds.


Displayed on the Porcher Industries’ stand will also be the award-winning product Flamline. This non-combustible glass fabric combines a high level of fire safety with creative design. It is intended for various indoor public spaces, such as cinemas, theatres and hospitals, as acoustic wall panels or sunscreens, as well as for transportation including cruise-ships, trains and buses.

Available in different weave patterns and numerous colours, Flamline was announced as the winner of the Excellent Product Design Award in the Materials & Surfaces Category at the German Design Awards 2019 earlier this year.
