A comparison of the wall thickness for a monolithic half-wa�e radome at different incidence angles is made by considering the loss tangent of the material used. It is seen that, for large incidence angles and for moderately low-loss radome materials, the computed wall thickness is different from the �alues obtained by neglecting the loss tangent of the material. The abo�e context seems to be important, particularly for �ariable thickness radomes for aerospace applications where the thickness from nose to base �aries with the angle of incidence and angle of polarization so as to achie�e the optimum design of the radome. An expression for computing the wall thickness is gi�en which is �alid for both moderately lossy and �ery low-loss radome materials. �
