A radome is a protective cover that is used to enclose and protect a radar antenna. The term “radome“ is derived from the words “radar“ and “dome“, as the structure often has a dome-like shape. The primary purpose of a radome is to protect the radar antenna from the environment, including weather, wind, and other external factors, while still allowing the radar signals to pass through.
Radomes are often made from composite materials, such as fiberglass or polystyrene thermoplastics , which are transparent to radar signals. The design of the radome must also take into account factors such as the frequency of the radar signals, the size of the antenna, and the specific environment in which it will be used. Radomes are commonly used on aircraft, ships, and ground-based radar systems.
