MFG Galileo Composites has completed its installation of four 48-foot composite radomes at the U.S. Air Force’s Cape Canaveral, Kwajalein, Diego Garcia, and Ascension GPS IIF ground stations.

MFG Galileo Composites was selected to design, manufacture, and install new composite wall radomes to replace existing metal space frame radomes by Boeing, prime contractor to the U.S. Air Force for GPS IIF satellites and ground stations.

The Department of Defense originally developed the GPS for all-weather military applications, but the system is available at no additional charge for civilian and commercial use.

“”The completion of these mission-critical installations for GPS IIF is a significant milestone for our company and our relationship with Boeing,”” said Clint Lackey, General Manager of MFG Galileo Composites. “”These installations add to our high-profile portfolio of mission-critical radome placements for both military and civilian applications worldwide. It is also another market validation of our industry-leading capabilities in composites research, design, and manufacturing applied to optimizing structural and RF performance.””
