CPI division will replace radomes on USAF B-52 aircraft

PALO ALTO, Calif. Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation officials selected the Radant Technologies Division of Communications & Power Industries (CPI) for a two-year contract to replace existing radomes on the U.S. Air Force B-52 aircraft. The firm-fixed price contract is worth approximately $4.1 million.

These replacement radomes are expected to be higher performance and more supportable than the previous forward nose radomes on the long-range strategic bomber.

Headquartered in Stow, Mass., CPI's Radant Technologies Division has provided radomes for the U.S. Air Force fleet of B-52 aircraft for several years. In 2011, DLA Aviation awarded Radant Technologies a seven-year, $45 million contract to replace aged and unsupportable radomes under the B-52 Radomes Replacement Program.
