The exact mathematical model of an aperture antenna and the image theory are used to develop exact and PO integral representations of the fields radiated by radome-enclosed aperture antenna. The desired problem is reduced to finding fields of a plane wave diffracted on the "symmetrized" radome. The passage of the wave through the wall of the radome is analysed by means of geometrical optics. Caustic influence is taken into account, and the contribution of stationary phase points of reflected field to the far-side radiation is discussed. Radiation patterns for antennas with a specified ampliphase distribution enclosed in spherical and parabolic radomes are analysed. © 2010 IEEE.
