Abstract : The patent application describes a low drag gyro stabilized radome for an aircraft. The radome is pivoted for roll and pitch by a universal joint between the radome and a pylon rigidly attached to the aircraft thereby enabling the radome, under gyro control, to remain horizontal to the ground during varying flight attitudes. An enclosed antenna is driven independently of the radome for tilt and sweep motion.
