AbstractA polyurethane foam radome was tested electrically for the Royal Canadian Air Force over the Quadradar, an X-band radar set. Transmission loss varied from 1½ to 3 percent as the radome was rotated about the antennas. An increase of 0.7 db was measured on a -24 db side lobe of the azimuth antenna. Increases of 1.5, 0.6, and 0.9 db were measured on -27, -24, and -29 db side lobes of the elevation antenna. Boresight tests on the radome showed a ±0.4 milliradian shift of the beam from the azimuth antenna and a ±0.24 milliradian shift of the beam from the elevation antenna. The radome meets all requirements.
