We evaluated a radome housing an ultra-wideband UWB signal collection system, measuring the transmission loss and phase delay through the radome. The radome introduced losses of up to 3 dB within the normal operating range of the antennas. Phase differences due to the radome appeared to be linear and consistent with the delay expected from a uniformly layered material. We observed no unusual effects from the specially designed protective radome.
