Research Centre Imarat (RCI), one of the premier DRDO labs has signed a “Licensing Agreement for Transfer of Technology” with a Chennai-based Private sector company Carborundum Universal Limited (CUMI) for manufacturing ceramic radomes used in aerospace and missile systems.
In a press statement, CUMI said that Ceramic radome technology is widely regarded as cutting-edge missile technology around the world. Because missiles experience extremely high surface temperatures while travelling through the atmosphere, ceramic is thought to be an ideal radome material. To ensure reliability and accuracy, the design of ceramic radomes for defence activities necessitates deep expertise and stringent testing at every stage.
CUMI claims that its lightweight ceramic ballistic solutions, made of Alumina, Zirconia-Toughened Alumina, and Silicon Carbide, are ergonomic and customizable for use in bulletproof vests. According to the company, CUMI’s lightweight ceramic materials provide the highest levels of ballistic and blast-proof protection for armoured vehicles.
