AASC designs and builds ground based defense structures for various applications. AASC's integrated product approach combines design, analysis and fabrication capabilities in metal, composite and honeycomb structures to achieve the highest level of performance required.
DDG-1000 Radome in Testing
AASC has extensive experience in radome and RF transmissive and structures and assemblies. Most of these radomes use Kevlar or Spectra fiber pre-pregs for ballistic protection and Rf transparency.
AASC is well versed in the use of all radome materials and understands electrical systems requirements. Segregated facilities for radome manufacturing have been established at AASC.
Radar Antenna Structure
AASC first began producing antenna structures to support space applications and has efficiently taken the knowledge gained to branch out into land and sea based applications as well. The picutre on the left represents one of our large radar structures for a ground based, trailer mounted, fire finding antenna system.
AASC has been producing electronic enclosures for ground based RADAR and other EMI/EMC sensitive applications for over 20 years.
AASC has found that ballistic structures, such as armor panels, are a perfect fit with current capabilities. To date AASC has produced many configurations of these panels which consist of various layers of materials including S-2 Glass, Kevlar, and Ceramics. The combination of materials not only provides structure, but also provides superior ballistic protection. These panels can be fabricated using a variety of processes including hand lay-up and Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Molding (VARTM).
