Requtech’s part in this project is to study and understand the best way to integrate a SatCom phased array antenna into an aircraft’s structure. In this way the structure will effectively be the protective radome for the antenna. This has many challenges because it requires expertise in electrical, RF and mechanical engineering to overcome the rigorous and conflicting requirements of RF transparency and the mechanical strength to withstand the structural and environmental conditions. Omid Sotoudeh, Requtech’s CEO, said “Requtech’s multi-discipline engineering team is perfectly suited to successfully taking on this challenge. We expect this will help to lead to new breakthroughs in airborne flat panel phased array design”.
Requtech is proud to announce that it is involved with Saab Aerospace’s Project IntDemo. The aim of this project is “To strengthen the OEM capability and thereby enhance the competitiveness of the Swedish aviation industry,” said Jan Erik Lindbäck, Project Manager for Saab Aerospace. Many technology SMEs, Universities and Research Institutes have innovative concepts, ideas, and new working methodologies that for various reasons, usually lack of funding, never make it to market. This project is a vehicle for Saab Aerospace to help transition these ideas and concepts into potential products and methodologies by developing demonstrators linked to a selected platform project.
