DRDO is procuring six composite Radomes for the Naval Anti-ship Missile-Medium range (NASM-MR) missile from an Indian defence firm. The Radome is made from an E-glass reinforcement and epoxy matrix monocoque structure. The process of fabricating the composite material includes:

Preparing the mold

Cutting the fiber

Preparing the resin and hardener mixture

Adding additives

Final layup for compression

E-glass epoxy has a tensile strength and flexural strength that is higher than that of Al carbon steel.

The NASM-MR is a solid-fuel rocket-powered missile that will be launched from frontline warships. It will have a longer range than the air-launched version of the missile, able to hit targets up to 350 km away.
