Abstract:

An integrated radomelens concept is developed for a multioctave rf radiation sensor guided missile application. Aerodynamic properties, drag, and thermal heating are analyzed. Electrical properties, transmissivity, and boresight error are optimized by using a layered wall construction and integrating a lens into the inner surface of the radome. Missile performance is evaluated with the integrated radomelens used as part of the missile system.
