An analytical model and computer simulation are presented for a radome located in the near field of an antenna. Using the computer code described here, design tradeoffs can be performed between electrical, structural, and aerodynamic properties of the radome. The code is based on a method of moments solution to the E-field integral equation for bodies of arbitrary shape. Measured radiation patterns for AGM-88 High Speed Antiradiation Missile (HARM) and AIM-9C missile radomes are compared to computed data.
