Composite Shelters, Radomes and Towers

Composite Shelters
SES, a business division of AES, is currently developing and qualifying a composite ISO tactical shelter in partnership with: Hill AFB, Thermoplastic Composite Designs, Inc. (TCD), WebCore Technologies, Inc., Infinite Technologies, Inc. (ITI), the US Navy and the US Army. An automated manufacturing process is also being developed to ensure that this newly applied technology is both effective and affordable.

Advantages of the composite shelters include:

  Reduced Maintenance/Repair Cost
  Reduced Environmental Impacts
  Reduced Weight
  Reduced Logistical Footprint
  Improved Thermal Efficiency
  Reduced Energy Consumption
  Extended Product Life


Composite Radomes

SES is currently working to develop and qualify an innovative, low-cost thermoplastic panel that will improve the physical, mechanical, and structural performance of conventional ground-based radomes. This effort is in partnership with Hill AFB, Thermoplastic Composite Designs, Inc. (TCD), Infinite Technologies, Inc. (ITI), the FAA, NOAA, the National Weather Service and Next Generation Radar (NexRad).

Advantages of the improved Composite Radomes include:

  Eliminate/Reduce Periodic Maintenance
  Eliminate/Reduce Environmental Compliance Burden
  Improved Field Durability
  Extended Lifecycle


Composite Towers
SES is currently developing a prototype composite tower that will reduce the current life-cycle cost of conventional towers. This effort is in partnership with Hill AFB, Strongwell, Inc. and US Air Force Space Command.

Advantages of composite towers include:

  Eliminate/Reduce Periodic Maintenance
  Eliminate/Reduce Environmental Compliance Burden
  Reduce System Repairs
  Reduce Safety Hazards
  Extended Lifecycle
