Abstract : This program is directed toward the evaluation of the feasibility of electronically scanned arrays conformal with the surface of aerospace vehicles namely, missiles. For purposes of analysis conical geometry has been adopted. Sum and difference patterns which can be scanned from broadside through the axis of the cone have been analysed. Expressions for mutual coupling have been derived and applied to a linear array. (Author)
