Such differences between two bordering layers under high-temperature conditions will result in thermal mismatch stress, which may be the critically vital factor for radome destruction.
Use some type of cushioning between the three straps and the metal hook to protect the MMA from scrapes, gouges or denting of the resin composite radome.
The wingman reported damage to the radome and the right intake.
We were worded that a change of airflow in the dirty configuration might cause the radome to fall off, or make some of the debris fall out of the hole and FOD an engine.

Ideally, the radome must allow transmission of electromagnetic waves and does not degrade the electrical performances of the enclosed antenna in any way.
The Dual and Quad antennas will combine antennas covering 698-940MHz and 1710-2155MHz in a single radome in order to satisfy the frequencies that all of the carriers use for mobile communication services.
The radome will still rotate, but it will be able to be stopped when desired for specific applications and functions, and will, thus, be able to scan 360 degrees or focus attention on specific targets or sectors.
