Abstract : The objective of this study was to determine the insertion loss of a specific dielectric honeycomb sandwich ground radome at 200 and 450 mcs, for both linear and circular polarization. To accomplish this objective, a twofold program was conducted. First, the insertion loss was determined theoretically from scale model scattering measurements of single radome ribs with their normal metallic hardware. The second phase of the program involved the direct measurement of insertion loss from a scaled section of the radome. The results of the first and second phases were then compared for corroboration.
