Abstract : A conformal array on a surface of small curvature can be approximated by a number of planar arrays, several of which may be excited simultaneously so as to achieve a performance similar to that of a conformal array. Since the main beam of a planar array can be steered to any direction in visible space, several arrays, each oriented in a different direction, can be steered cooperatively to form a single beam in a desired direction. A general formulation of the radiated field of such a configuration of arrays is developed with the aid of formulas which relate the components into which a vector is resolved in one orthogonal coordinate system with those into which the same vector is resolved in a second orthogonal coordinate system.
