Traditionally, antennas have been designed as separate components, mounted on e.g. masts, buildings, and vehicles. Modem systems, however, require antennas to be integrated with existing structures. This paper discusses the analysis of conformally integrated array antennas using the hybrid UTD-MoM method, in particular arrays on doubly curved surfaces. Computed results are shown including singly and doubly curved surfaces. Most of the results are verified by measured results and calculated results obtained with a modal solution.
