Abstract : The patent pertains to an antenna window for ablative type heat shield where the forward edge of the window is below the level of the heat shield and the trailing edge extends above the surface of the heat shield creating abrupt steps in the overall surface, precluding severe local material loss due to differences in ablation rates of the window and surrounding heat shield material.
