Abstract:

The results of an electrical evaluation of ground rigid radomes are reported. This evaluation included the measurement of the effects of two 110 foot equatorial diameter metal spaceframe radomes scale model versions to the radiation characteristics of linear polarizedANTENNAS. These measurements were made at KBand frequencies. In addition to measuring the effects to antenna patterns and transmission loss, two plane boresight shift and boresight shift rate measurements were made with one of these models. Also, two plane boresight shift measurements at S-Band were obtained for a 26 12 foot equatorial diameter dielectric radome. Author
