An analysis of an infinite array of dipole elements over a radar absorbing material (RAM) coated ground plane and covered with a radome is presented. The radiation impedance of the dipole element is obtained when the array is in transmitting mode, and a scattering analysis is carried out when the array is excited by an incoming plane wave and the dipole elements are terminated in loads. The electric field Green's function in terms of Floquet mode expansion due to a periodic δ-function horizontal dipole source is derived to satisfy the layered boundary conditions. The method of moments is used to solve the current distribution on the dipole. Numerical calculation of the radiation impedance of a dipole array covered with a radome has been verified with results from waveguide simulator measurements. Numerical examples are given to show the effect of the RAM coated ground plane on the radiation impedance and the scattering characteristics
