Mission Challenges Spur Next Generation Missile Radome Materials Innovations

Despite their seemingly simple shapes, radomes are complex components that have competing design requirements. The radome forms a part of the aerodynamic structure of the missile, and must be able to support the aerodynamic and structural loads placed upon it. A radome must protect the sensitive guidance and electronic components from the captive carry or flight environment (e.g., sand, rain, hail), while resisting high flight temperatures.
