Abstract: In this paper a systematic approach to radome design is presented. The problem is formulated as a global optimization procedure such that the radome performance is optimized by properly adjusting the thickness of the radome layer over the entire radome surface. In this approach the thickness profile is parameterized via B-splines representation. Simulated annealing technique is applied to finding the best thickness profile so that the maximum boresight error is reduced as small as possible over the entire range of the antenna look angle. A two-dimensional design example is given. The best possible thickness profile is found and the boresight error is reduced considerably compared to that due to a uniform layer. The method is general and can be applied without difficulty to other realistic three-dimensional radomes of arbitrary shapes.
