Drag force effect is an important aspect of range performance in missile applications. Depending on domes geometry, this effect can be decreased. Hemispherical domes have great image uniformity but more drag force has an effect on it. Four and eight faceted domes decrease drag force. However, environment reflections cause a noise in a system. Also depending on the faceted domes shape, sun and other sources in the environment are deformed in the face of them and these deformed objects result in a false target in an image. In this study; hemispherical, four faceted and eight faceted domes are compared with respect to drag force. Furthermore, images are captured by using these manufactured domes. To compare domes effects on images, scenarios are generated and automatic target acquisition algorithm is used.
