New London — A crew from Industrial Engineers installed a radome to the roof of Smith Hall at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy on Friday.

The 18-foot geodesic dome will house electronic equipment to receive data from a series of CubeSats, miniature satellites, launched for a Coast Guard Research and Development Center project, in conjunction with the Coast Guard Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School.

The dome was assembled by a team from the three groups at the end of November in the parking lot adjacent to the building.
