King ARThuR is back…


SPECTO’s R&D Team managed to wake up King ARThuR again:

Together with ARThuR’s famous sword Excalibur – a sharp and accurate ‘Knights Tool’ – the King was known and feared.

Today, SPECTO wakes-up its own 21st century version of the King’s Tool. As Europeans largest independent Radome Repair Center, SPECTO developed a complete new Automated Radome Test Range (ARThuR) in-house which not only meets the latest standard of the RTCA DO-213 Test Requirements but also exceeds them: sharp and accurate collecting of a load of RF data to reproduce and/or validate any errors.

SPECTO’s new ‘Knight Tool’ is an impressive 4 meter high 8-axis robot setup with a well engineered multi flexible Main Frame having aircraft forward bulkhead mounts all around to install your valuable Radome safely. The device is capable to handle more than 450 Radome Part Numbers from the biggest Airbus and Boeing Radomes till the smallest Bombardier and Cessna Radomes, and everything in between.

Many operators know SPECTO for its quick TAT for Transmission Efficiency Testing and when planned, SPECTO offers Same Day Delivery RF Services to you, if required.

With more than 400 Radome shop visits a year this tool helps us to deal with the ever increasing number of repairs and tests, thus getting your bird flying as soon as possible! 

Watch the short introduction movie (see fixed wing aircraft | SPECTO Aerospace) and schedule an appointment with our Marketing & Sales Team to further discuss our core business: composite & light weight structure repairs. Come and visit us at booth #3089 at the MRO Europe exhibition in Amsterdam


Be sure to visit us at the MRO Europe in Amsterdam from October 20-21 at booth #3089. That week we will do a great innovation announcement related to Radome repairs. SPECTO processes more than 400 Radome shop visits per year, ranging from the smaller Business Jet Radomes to the large commercial aircraft Radomes, not forget to mention Helicopter Radomes.

Our extensive experience guarantees that we perform high quality repairs. And based on a larger future business volume of Radome repairs, SPECTO continues to invest in an even higher quality standard. Not without a reason we quote: “Bring MRO to Manufacturers Standard”. Note that the final picture above will show just one of the results of SPECTO’s R&D Team.

More on this in the upcoming post next week as well as during the MRO Europe. See you in Amsterdam and let’s meet!

Last week we shared the topic “Innovation | Digitalization | Robotization” with you. On 20 – 21 October, SPECTO returns to MRO Europe exhibition in Amsterdam (booth #3089). Full of pride and with pleasure, we will share the results of one of our latest and absolutely unique innovations with the aerospace world during MRO Europe.

We are also happy to introduce Guido Kerbusch, our new Business & Development Manager since October 01. Guido has a senior background in aerospace services and we are delighted that Guido joined our Team! Together with the rest of the SPECTO Team, Guido is looking forward to meeting you.
