Antennas, Electrostatics, Lightning Protection
Applying experience and innovation to serve aircraft programs worldwide since 1943.
DAYTON-GRANGER, INC. (DG), a family-owned business, has more than 70 years of experience in designing, testing and manufacturing antennas, electrostatics and lightning protection products for military, commercial and general aviation aircraft applications. With all operations based in our single location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we combine efficiency with innovation to offer high quality products at competitive prices.
Our product line includes:
- – Active, passive and conformal antennas
- – Static dischargers and retainers
- – Electrostatic test sets
- – Lightning protection: transtrike diverter strips and lightning arresters
AntennasDG’s antennas include off-the-shelf antennas for commercial and military applications, as well as custom and modified designs for specific aircraft programs. As antenna experts, we specialize in a variety of antennas including:
- - Blade
- - Low Profile
- - Conformal and Flush Mounted
- - Whips
- - Blade
- - Fixed Wire Systems
- - Custom Designs
ElectrostaticsDG has been manufacturing electrostatic protection products longer than any other company and is recognized as the primary supplier of quality static dischargers. DG's dischargers range from the original 1940s DG patented "wicks" used on such vintage aircraft as the DC-3, to the Null Field Ortho-Decoupled Discharger. DG also designs and manufactures Micropoint Dischargers, Carbonpoint Dischargers and our newly developed Composite Dischargers.
DG dischargers offer:
- - Superior noise quieting capabilities
- - Long service life
- - Wide range of speed requirements
- - Proven effectiveness
- - Aerodynamic performance
- - Temperature stability
Our superior DG Null Field Dischargers dissipate static electric charge interference in three ways:
- - Reduce the voltage level required to initiate corona discharge (intensity reduction).
- - Provide a path for electrostatic discharge to take place at right angles to antenna fields (orthogonal coupling).
- - Provide regions of practically zero RF field strength (null field) causing the discharge to take place in these regions (reciprocal field decoupling).
