The paper considers a method for calculating the direction-finding characteristics of a two-dimensional antenna array in an ogival dielectric radome for E- and H-polarizations of an incident plane wave. The method is based on a solution of integral equations relative to the field inside a radome. The calculation results are presented for the radiation patterns of a considered antenna system with two polarizations and for the dependence of bearing angular errors on the radome parameters.
