Summary: 
The authors propose the simple and efficient method based on the shooting and bouncing rays (SBR) method in order to evaluate multi-reflection effects inside a radome. In this paper, we show the analysis procedure of the proposed method. Next, we compare calculated data with some measured data in order to verify the proposed method. We confirmed that the proposed method is effective for the objects with radome except the areas where strong edge diffraction appears.
