The results of elaboration and analysis of radiotransparent covers (RTC) for mobile aerials (i.e., rotating antennas mounted at fixed locations or on moving objects) of various radar installations (RI) are presented. Experimental and analytical estimation of design and technology factors influencing RTC durability is proposed. The characteristics of developed RTC basic models for mobile RI are presented.
