The large size and thin layers of radomes often precludes the use of full wave analysis tools. A method is presented here for plane wave multilayer dielectric radome analysis using a field matching model. Parallel rays are generated at the radiating aperture with the proper amplitude and phase. The rays intercept a locally planar model of the radome. Using plane wave analysis, the amplitude and phase shift of each ray is computed after passing through the radome. The resulting rays are used to create an equivalent aperture to project to the far field where parameters of interest are computed. Data is presented visually on the radome surface.
