A radome is a dielectric structure that is used to protect an antenna from its environment (wind, rain, ice, salt spray, dust, insects), and it may be used to reduce aerodynamic drag. Radomes serve as feed covers, covers attached to the antenna, or covers within which an antenna moves. Therefore, they have a wide variety of shapes and wall structures (Huddleston and Bassett 1993).
