Cobham to Supply Conformal Antenna Suite for Korean Fighter Aircraft

Cobham Antenna Systems has been awarded a contract from Korean Aerospace Industries Ltd (KAI) to design and supply the fully conformal antenna suite for the future KF-X, next-generation indigenous multi-role and fighter aircraft.

Unlike traditional antennas which stand proud of the skin of a platform, conformal antennas are built into the skin and allow for reduced drag, improved aerodynamics and reduced life-cycle repair costs.

The KF-X conformal antenna suite will offer a full range of Communication, Navigation and Identification (CNI) functionality.

Cobham recently exhibited at the Seoul International Aerospace and Defence Exhibition (ADEX) from the 17-22 October at the Seoul Airport, ADEX exhibition site in South Korea.
