Abstract : The influence of radome boresight error on missile guidance motivates the need for accurate methods of analyzing radomes. Although methods based on aperture diffraction and the approximation of local planeness are useful in some cases, these methods are inadequate for small radomes. This report describes a new method. It compares theoretical and experimental wavefront data. (Author)
