Abstract
A COMPUTATIONAL TOOL FOR THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF CONICALLY CONFORMAL ARRAY ANTENNAS IS TO BE DEVELOPED. THIS TOOL WILL BE BASED ON TWO ANALYTIC APPROACHES: (1) A HIGH-FREQUENCY ASYMPTOTIC (RAY) METHOD AND (2) AN EIGENEXCITATION (MODAL) TECHNIQUE. THE EFFECTS OF MUTUAL COUPLING, ARRAY EDGE CONTRIBUTIONS AND TIP DIFFRACTION WILL BE INCLUDED. THE RESULTING COMPUTER CODE WILL BE USED TO DESIGN A BASELINE ARRAY FOR WHICH IDENTIFIED PHASE II PARAMETRIC VARIATIONS CAN BE ANALYZED AND EMPIRICAL VALIDATIONS PERFORMED. AN INITIAL VALIDATION OF THIS BASELINE DESIGN AND ITS PREDICTED PERFORMANCE WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING AN EXISTING MOMENT METHOD CODE.
