Aircraft nose cone construction and maintenance
from AZO Materials
Found at the foremost point of an aircraft, a nose cone must be aerodynamic in order to reduce drag on a plane. On most commercial and military aircraft, the nose cone also houses radar and other instruments that might be used to detect meteorological phenomena, track enemy aircraft or transmit communication signals. Because they protect sensitive instruments while allowing electronic signals to pass through, nose cones — also known as radomes — must be made from specific materials.
