Radomes Before WXGuard Lightning Protection

It’s hard to believe that aircraft designers, for many years, did not provide lightning protection for radomes. This usually resulted in big holes in the radomes and significant damage to radars. Today, lightning protection can be easily added to the exterior of the radome using WXGuard segmented lightning diverters. RF transparent and rain erosion resistant, WXGuard diverter provide great lightning protection without affecting radome performance.
