Radome Electromagnetic Theory and Design explores the theoretical tools and methods required to design radomes that are fully transparent to the electromagnetic energy transmitted or received by the enclosed antenna. A radome is a weatherproof and camouflaged enclosure that protects the enclosed radar or communication antenna, and are typically used on a fixed or moving platform such as an aircraft, ship or missile.
The author - a noted expert in the field - examines the theoretical methods that apply to all type of radomes: planar, conformal, airborne and ground based. The text offers a description of the various measurement methods that characterise the electrical parameters of a radome, and discusses their merits in terms of accuracy. This groundbreaking book brings together in one volume all the necessary theoretical tools to design radomes

I have been active in the areas of radome design and analysis, as a quick search of my Google scholar list of articles on Frequency Selective surfaces (FSSs) will readily show. In my opinion, this book is simply only one-of-its-kind on the subject of radomes. It is well organized, thorough, and it is easy to follow. It is useful both for practicing engineers designing radomes, graduate students learning about radomes and how to design them, and for researchers wanting to improve the existing designs. The book is an interesting mix of both the theoretical and practical aspects of analysis and design and is very well suited for use as supporting material for a Short Course on radomes.
All in all, I have a very high opinion of this book, and I recommend it strongly to anyone who is either active in the field of radome, or wants to get into it in the future. I am very confident in saying that you couldn't find a better reference on the subject, not only from an academic point of view, but also as an excellent source of information useful for designing radomes.
