The paper presents a new technique, based on the principles of physical
optics, for the calculation of the radio-technical characteristics of antenna –
radome system with dimensions of tens of wavelengths. This method is compared with the
other existing physico-optical methods. It is shown that the accuracy of the
new method is significantly better than the accuracy of existing methods. The
developed method was tested via comparison of results with the moment method
calculations in CAD program package FEKO. Also, the results of computational and experimental
studies to improve the radiotechnical characteristics of the radome are
discussed. The research results presented in this article have been reported at
the Second All-Russian Microwave Conference (26-28 November 2014, Moscow).
