A Microwave Spot Probe Method for Scanning Aircraft Radomes - RF Cafe

Whitepaper: "A Microwave Spot Probe Method for Scanning Aircraft Radomes"

Dr. John Schultz Chief Scientist at Compass Technology Group - RF CafeDr. John Schultz, Chief Scientist at Compass Technology Group.

Dr. Schultz is the Chief Scientist at the Compass Technology Group where he leads research and development efforts in RF materials and measurement technology. Previously he was a Technical Fellow at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, where he led programs in experimental and computational research on the electromagnetic properties of materials, structures, and antennas. He has developed materials characterization methodologies via free-space, waveguide, resonant cavity, and impedance analysis instrumentation. He has also modeled electromagnetic composite materials and developed new composite material concepts for novel antenna applications. He has used thermal analysis, microscopy, and analytical techniques to correlate microstructure to macroscopic properties in his research for providing new insight into electromagnetic material characteristics. Dr. Schultz has also developed new techniques for microwave measurement of scatter phenomena and has applied these techniques to materials ranging from composites to camouflage nets. Dr. Schultz’s backscatter methodologies have become an accepted standard method for characterizing diffuse microwave scatter in numerous government and industrial laboratories. In previous positions, he has worked in the areas of novel polymer processing including stereolithography, polymer film formation, and conductive polymers.

Indianapolis, Indiana, February-10, 2022 - Copper Mountain Technologies is pleased to announce an online event coming up as part of our VNA Master Class Webinar series: "Non-Destructive Microwave Evaluation of Radome Performance." Hosted by Copper Mountain Technologies and Compass Technology Group, the webinar will be taking place on Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET.

Radomes can experience defects due to wear or impact events that degrade both mechanical and electromagnetic performance. Traditional radome testing often resorts to the crude "tap test" where an operator listens for sound changes with a tapping coin to detect defects. CTG has developed new and improved methods that integrate rugged microwave sensors and Copper Mountain's portable VNAs to significantly improve diagnostic testing of radomes.

This webinar will provide a brief overview of the theory of microwave NDE methods for radome characterization. We will then demonstrate both handheld and robotic testing of radomes with integrated wideband spot probes and miniaturized VNAs.

Join Copper Mountain Technologies and Compass Technology Group's Dr. John Schultz as he demonstrates state-of-the-art techniques to evaluate Radome performance.

About RF Cafe

Kirt Blattenberger - RF Cafe Webmaster

Copyright: 1996 - 2024


    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
