Everything we do at EEC is engineered to maximize radar performance for our customers. That's why we're proud to be the exclusive provider of the new STEALTH® radome developed by our friends at Antennas for Communications (AFC).
In fact, this new radome technology is up to 50-times better than other common radome designs.
In dual-polarity radar technology, an electromagnetic wave with both vertical and horizontal polarizations is transmitted. Depending on the differential nature of the received echoes, critical weather parameters such as rain intensity and properties of the raindrop are determined.
Since parameters such as differential reflectivity and phase are relatively small and subject to noise effects, any errors caused by interference of the radome can have significant impact on the accuracy of weather measurements.
The EEC STEALTH® weather radome exhibits nearly identical performance for both polarizations offering truly stealth-like behavior for dual-polarization measurements. With its unique innovative geometry and novel scattering compensation technique, the STEALTH® radome is the next generation transparent radome for weather radar applications.
