The radome is one of the parts of aeroplanes that fulfils various functions at once, that is, it completes the aerodynamic shape of the fuselage and holds and protects the airborne weather radar or AWR, amongst other functions.
Commercial aeroplanes fly at an altitude of over 12 kilometers and just as we saw in our article about the different layers of the atmosphere, at these heights, the majority of meteorological phenomena takes place.
It is primordial, therefore, that aeroplanes have a system to avoid bad weather, but how do radome and aircraft weather radar work? Remember all the details we give below!
