Abstract : The principal results of the work were the development of numerical-analytical techniques for predicting the radiation patterns and impedance of given antennas when mounted on aircraft and the detailed study of the effects of outboard members of the aircraft structure on radiation patterns. Extensions of the numerical-analytical techniques developed are suggested. Conclusions are drawn about the spacing of antennas from obstacles to minimize interaction and a possible new antenna interaction is proposed. Various studies peripheral to the main effort are also described. (Author)
