This report describes the construction and use of a fixture to hold a dome for measurements at different locations and different angles of incidence. Meaningful measurements of dome transmission were made with ultraviolet-visible-near infrared spectrophotometer equipped with an integrating sphere to collect refracted radiation. This work was conducted under the auspices of the U.S. Navy. This report was reviewed for technical accuracy by Robert Seaver.
