Abstract : Antennas on modern ships protrude form the structure and are quite vulnerable to combat damage or inclement weather. Conformal antennas are needed to allow a ship to communicate after sustaining battle damage in heavy weather. This thesis investigates three conformal antennas: a microstrip, a slot each is discussed along with computer model results obtained from the Numerical Electromagnetics Code-Method of Moments and Basic Scattering code. Keywords include: Combat survivable antennas, VHF/UHF; and Computer modeling of antennas.
