A Broadband Kevlar Radome for Shipboard,

A broadband radome for use on the Grumman M161 Hydrofoil craft was designed, fabricated, and tested. Dominant design considerations included electrical performance over a 2-18 GHz band in addition to a lightweight structure and compatibility with the shipboard environment. The requirement for a fire control radar to be mounted on top of the radome assembly also dictated a very rigid structure to minimize angular deflection errors.
