Abstract
Envision Engineering plans to bypass the issues associated with the traditional use of thermoset plastics in the development of functional large ground-based radomes by instead using thermoplastic materials and innovative manufacturing processes to create a functional radome design for a radar system of interest to the Air Force. This proposal describes in detail the following: technical objectives, range of existing radome types (i.e. the competition), reasoning for and description of the thermoplastic manufacturing technique, design and analysis innovations involved with achieving competitive radome performance, specific tasking related to the technical objectives, past work related to this proposal, relationship of this proposal's objectives with future research and development, commercialization strategy, key personnel including resumes, facilities and equipment to be utilized, involved subcontractors and consultants, and support (prior, current, or pending) of similar proposals or awards. It is our belief that a radome comparable in electromagnetic and structural performance and superior in impact resistance and environmental factors, will ultimately result from our application of thermoplastic technology to the development of large ground-based radomes as described in this proposal.
