Because the conformal optical technology can obviously improve the aerodynamic performance of the infrared guidance missile, it has been studied deeply in recent years. By comparing the performance of the missiles with conformal dome and conventional missiles, the advantages of the conformal optical technology are demonstrated in the maneuverability and stealth of the missile. At present, the study of conformal optical systems focuses on ellipsoid or quadratic curve types. But in actual use, the dome using these curves is not the best choice. In this paper, the influence of different shape of the dome on aerodynamic performance, aerodynamic heating, internal space volume and other properties is discussed. The result shows infrared optical system with conformal dome of Karman-curve shape has a good application prospect, is the future direction of development. Finally, the difficult problems of conformal dome of Karman-curve shape are discussed.
