A synthesis technique for radiation patterns due to conformal antenna arrays on PEC circular cylinders of finite length

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The effects of platform geometry on the synthesis of an array of conformal antennas were investigated using an array of nine microstrip patch antennas mounted on a truncated PEC circular cylinder. It was assumed that all the elements on the finite cylinder had the element pattern of the patch antenna located halfway along the axis of the cylinder. The radiation patterns of array elements were found to be dependent on the platform geometry. A nonprogressive phasing or a nonuniform amplitude tapering was suggested to compensate for many of the problems associated with designing of conformal arrays.
