Antenna Enclosure Design
A challenging customer unknown application required fitting a patch-array antenna inside a tightly fit radome. The mounting bracket and electrical connectors were specified. Determining a compact configuration that allows the application rotational mobility, installation, and manufacturability requires in-depth dimensional prototyping and attention to detail.
The above figure shows a summary of the large mounting bracket that attaches to the plate-like antenna region with the connectors on the side. The cut-away on the end shows the internal layers.
