Don’t know why you included curved surfaces. As long as they are RF transparent and the antenna can be mount facing parallel with the road, curves don’t matter.
Could be he was taking into account the curved surface radii would actually provide a longer transition path inside plastic medium for the arriving wavefront to propagate through, if part of the Horn aperture was in the curve & part wasn't. Then there would be a phase shift induced to one side of wavefront, resulting perturbations within the Horn would cause antenna gain loss.
It's the same reason one should never put Remote antennas behind plastic (or metal) mesh grills.

I know i'm late to post but this is an insanely impressive radar detector, I know I rag on and on alot about the pro m in my use cases not being able to pick up redflex with TSRej high enabled, to that I apologise to @Jon at Radenso and @Randy at Radenso for being a huge PITA, but this will likely solve my issues so thanks guys. Also thanks Radenso for looking towards the future and constantly innovating, I am sick and tired of chatty detectors (hence why I ditched uniden and the R3 for my pro M) and I am so glad you guys found a way to eliminate the falses entirely.

0 BSM Falses. OMFG!!!! Thank you!!!!!!
This (BSM falsing) is my one complaint about the (Uniden) R7...
Definitely interested in the (Radenso) Theia based on the video interview with Jon...

Not sure anyone has asked this (I apologize if it has), but is there any planned integration with ALP with Theia?

Check out the Q&A section in the OP:

“Q: Will Radenso Theia detect laser? What about ALP integration?
A: Yes, we do have plans for Radenso Theia to detect laser but we haven't started on development for that yet. We would love to have ALP integration, that is still something we are working on.”

Q: Will I be able to use a RJ11 jack with Theia?
A: Unfortunately no, to power Theia a USB-C connection is required. RJ11 is a old outdated cable and cannot handle the power that Radenso Theia will need. A RJ11 adapter will not be possible because of this.

Radenso are you able to confirm that a typical mirrortap connection would still provide sufficient power?

Are any talks underway with 3rd party companies?

Edit it was answered in this thread;

@Jon at Radenso @Randy at Radenso I'm sure given considerations such as costs and availability/supply that your plans for production will continue to utilize the Rockchip sbc used in your prototyping? Most importantly!! Would you guys consider selling the rf frontend/horn antenna "module" and a software license (if not open source) in a sort of kit to those of us who would be interested in developing/building the system say using a different board with tweaks to the Linux OS? I see huge potential to spend far too much of dare I say the next decade of my life getting lost down this rabbit hole 😂 ...but seriously the potential for interfacing with other devices, ie. dash cams, laser jammers, crowd sourcing software, navigation systems - (particularly the Augmented Reality community-based traffic and 3d mapping navigation software built on the Ethereum blockchain network that I am proud to dev, contribute to and support! BULVRD Drive - Check it out all, Android/iPhone app stores) etc. is limitless and the nerd in me has to want to build one of these with ridiculously overspec'd hardware just because lol!!

I don't mind selling you just the horn and ADC portion. Not sure how much support we could devote to it, but the horn module, DSP board, and even the arm cpu is connectorized.

The whole point of this thing is to do exactly what you said - I want people hacking and ripping this thing apart.

Great work, Radenso, and great news! Looking forward to this RD coming out! A couple of questions:

Will this radar detector pick up hard to detect, pole-mounted radar? I believe that Redflex deploys such units, perhaps other mfgs? -- not sure. Unfortunately we have them in certain jurisdictions here in Arizona. Somehow I missed seeing a 30 mph zone with this radar, and my Radenso Pro M did NOT pick it up, so I ended up with a ticket.

Will this windshield mounted detector be a two part unit, or will everything be integrated into one piece of hardware?

I apologize if these questions have already been answered, as I haven't waded through the 30 pages of this thread.

We've gathered Redflex data already. MestaFusion as well. There hasn't been a radar collection yet that we haven't been able to record, train on and inference. Nifty, huh?

In regards to design, we haven't finalized that just yet. We do have renderings but nothing is final and until then, we'd rather keep it zipped on that still.

Will be sweet music to several ears.
Redflex is pretty distinctive, visually I can easily tell it from any other camera. It's actually a much cooler modulation scheme than MRCD is. What will be cool about Theia isn't just Redflex support, but sufficient sensitivity to make it and MRCD/MRCT actually useful.

This will be truly revolutionary, people bitch and moan about BSMs- rightfully so, but redflex and the others you mentioned have been a major difficulty in detecting reliably with any useful range. Looking forward to it.

So what you're saying is...

just curious, I am very new to how deep indepth this forum goes, but in the DFW TX area, i have noticed on some of the newer intersections or stoplights that are being placed, the R7 i have currently detects something which is classifies as MRCD, along with 1-3 (maybe more, i dont know) K band signals in the background. there is no camera from what I have noticed so I am guessing it is some sort of traffic monitor. do you all or anybody else know what this system is? if this is the wrong place to post this question lemme know! thanks all

It's definitely not MRCD and it very well could be a K band traffic monitor. If you can get me a pic I can probably help provide more clarity.

Thanks for that info! Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is my understanding the the aforementioned Redflex radar is low power, plus that the radar is pointed to the car AFTER it passes the pole mount. And that the combination of those two facts are the reason that it has been a difficult signal for radar detectors to pick up. So is it Radenso's belief that this new unit will be able to pick those signals up in time to alert the driver?

I don't visit any other CM sites...can anyone comment on what/how if anything the competition has reacted with ?..negativity or otherwise ?..

They are MRCT for red light tickets. I posted a thread a while back with pics and video. Will see if I can dig it out.
