Design Considerations

Engineers face unique challenges when designing radomes, whether it is for aircraft, ships or ground-vehicles. Some considerations that can impact design include:

  • Minimal RF attenuation/low loss of signal
  • Broad bandwidth
  • Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) filters
  • Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS)
  • High transmission
  • High power
  • High temperature (-65°F to +185°F, or >1000°F)
  • Overheating of the radome or the antenna
  • Strength and precision
  • Damage tolerance
  • Rain and particle erosion
  • Lightning protection
  • Bird impact
  • Hail impact
  • Manufacturability
