A radome (a combination of radar and dome) is a structural, weatherproof enclosure that protects a microwave or radar antenna. The radome is constructed of material that minimally attenuates the electromagnetic signal transmitted or received by the antenna. The radome is therefore transparent to radar or radio waves. Radomes protect the antenna surfaces from the environment and conceal antenna electronic equipment from public view. They could also protect nearby personnel from being accidentally struck by rotating antennas.
Radomes can be constructed in several shapes (spherical, geodesic, planar, etc.) depending upon the particular application using various construction materials (fiberglass, Teflon coated fabric, etc.). When used on UAVs or other aircraft, in addition to such protection, the radome also streamlines the antenna system, thus reducing resistance.
