Abstract:

A description of computer codes covering boresight error prediction, flat panel reflection and transmission properties, Von Karman geometry parameters, and spherical wave propagation for radomes is presented. The theoretical basis for each code is discussed, and examples of inputs and outputs are given. Comparison of theory with experimental data shows reasonable correlation. Thus, these codes can predict many interesting and useful properties needed for adequate initial radome design without resorting to expensive and time-consuming test procedures.
