The activity includes the theoretical and simulated (with full-wave solvers, e.g., Ansys HFSS, and Physical-Optics solvers, e.g., Ticra's GRASP) study of two novel radome structures.

In the first case, the activity deals with metal space frame (MSF) radomes, realized according to an innovative mechanical approach to reduce the overall metallic footprint, thus improving the transparency at microwave frequencies.

In the second case, the activity deals with multi-layer radome (MLR), where the transparency of the joints is expected to be improved using novel compensation strategeies.

In both cases experimental tasks are expected, measurements using VNAs and anechoic chambers, to verify the achieved performance. To this aim, being the anechoic chamber located at FDS facilities (Erba, Como), partner of this research activity, it is expected that around five days per months will be spent at FDS premises to support the experimental phase.
