Abstract : Results are presented for an analysis which permits computation of the near fields of rectangular aperture and monopole antennas mounted on a generalized elliptic cylinder. Also presented is a general solution form computing near field patterns of on-aircraft antennas in the principal planes. The solution employs approximate models of the aircraft structure in conjunction with the Geometrical Theory of Diffraction to obtain the total field at specified near field locations. Computed and measured pattern data are included to demonstrate the capabilities of the solution. (Author)
