Abstract The article presents analysis of the impact of conformal antennas radius of curva-

ture on their basic parameters and characteristics of radiation. In order to verify the numerical

results there were built models of practically analyzed conformal antennas, their measurements

were taken in anechoic chamber and compared to those of planar antennas. Numerical analysis

has been carried out (for basic shapes: cylinder, sphere, toroid) using CST Studio Suite software.

Analysed antenna worked within frequency range between 22002300 MHz (aviation, in telemetry

systems).

1. INTRODUCTION

The main reason for intensive development of conformal microstrip antennas is the fact that it is rel-

atively easy to integrate them with the shape of the surface on which they are installed [11, 15, 16, 24].

Mainly this applies to aircraft, spacecraft, high-speed trains, rockets and missiles in which each pro-

jecting element affects adversely aerodynamics, fuel consumption, etc., while conformal antenna can

be in a simple way mounted on the aircraft wings or on the outer surface of the hull. This is par-

ticularly important as on the surfaces of modern aircraft there are often more than 30 different

antenna systems installed.

Another reason for rapid development of conformal microstrip antennas is their easy incorpora-

tion into existing elements of urban architecture. Antennas are an essential element of the plurality

of measurement [58, 10, 1921]. In microstrip antennas are important parameters of the dielectric,

which can be explored to measure in accordance with the methods described in the [1, 2, 9, 12, 16].

2. ANALYZED MODELS OF ANTENNAS

To analyze the impact of conformal antennas radius of curvature on their basic parameters and

characteristics of radiation there was selected frequency ranges: 22002300 MHz. This range is used

in aviation, in telemetry systems.

For selected frequency was designed planar coaxially fed microstrip antenna. Then each antenna

was placed sequentially on conformal surfaces: cylinder, sphere, torus, where for each of them full-

wave analysis of antennas numerical parameters was carried out in CST Studio Suite.

Figure 1 shows analyzed conformal antenna placed on the side surface of the cylinder. Radiating

element has a rectangular shape with dimensions 2L = 38.0 mm and 2b = 39.4 mm (width of

radiating element as seen from inside of the cylinder). This element is placed on a dielectric of

thickness h = R b = 3.048 mm, dielectric permittivity = 2.55. The antenna is fed by a 50

coaxial probe (p = 5.54 mm; Zp = 5.84 mm). Around the cylinder of R radius there is vacuum of

parameters: 0 i 0 .

For each conformal surface radius length was varied in the range 3010000 mm. It took on

average about 1 hour to perform antenna analysis for selected single radius length by applying

distribution of analysed antennas structure in the programme CST Studio Suite at about 6 million

meshcells and using PC with processor Intel Core Duo (E4500, 2.2 GHz, 2 GB RAM). Each antenna

was analysed for 30 different radius length of conformal surface. Results of conformal antenna

analysis for subsequent changes of the radius of curvature R are presented on consecutive figures.

Obtained results of the analysis are plotted on graphs as red (for each R change) and connected

with each other by B-spline curves (Basis spline function). Dashed line marks value of the parameter

for corresponding planar antenna.

3. CONFORMAL ANTENNA ON THE SIDE SURFACE OF THE CYLINDER

The chapter presents analysis of conformal coaxially fed antenna (shown on Figure 1) working in

the frequency range between 22002300 MHz and placed on the side surface of the cylinder with

radius R, which value was changed within the range 30 mm10000 mm (0.2270 75.7170 ). The

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium Proceedings 303

aim of this analysis is to examine impact of curvature of the side surface of the cylinder on antennas

basic parameters.

The graph in Figure 2 shows dependence of antenna resonance frequency f0 on cylinder radius

R. Almost for all changes of radius length the value of antenna resonance frequency is maintained

at the level of planar antenna resonance frequency f0 = 2.27 MHz (dashed line). Only in the range

of low values of radius R < 0 we can observe increase in resonance frequency.

Next Figure 3 shows dependence of reflection coefficient S11 for conformal antenna resonance

frequency placed on cylinder side surface depending on cylinder radius R. On the graph we can see

that value of reflection coefficient S11 for R > 120 is almost constant and equals S11 = 19.74 dB.

For radius value R < 0 this coefficient decreases its value even to the level of S11 = 43.5 dB.

Dependence of reflection coefficient S11 of low values of cylinder radius r < 1.50 of conformal

antenna placed on the cylinder side surface is shown in Figure 4.

Figure 5 presents bandwidth of cylindrical conformal antenna f depending on cylinder ra-

dius R.

4. CONFORMAL ANTENNA OF THE SPHERE SURFACE

Antenna shown in Figure 1 was next placed on the sphere surface with radius R. Analysis results

for antenna working in the frequency range 22002300 MHz placed on the surface of the sphere are

shown in Figures 69.

The graph in Figure 6 shows dependence of antenna resonance frequency f0 of the sphere radius

R. Almost for all changes of radius R resonance frequency of the antenna is maintained at the level

of planar antenna resonance frequency f0 = 2.27 MHz. Only in the range R < 0 we can observe

Figure 7 shows bandwidth of antenna f depending on radius R of the sphere on which the

antenna is placed.

Antenna shown in Figure 1 was next placed on the torus surface with internal radius r = 0.3790

(50 mm) and external radius R which was changed in the range 30 mm10000 mm (0.2270 75.7170 ).

Figure 8 shows dependence of reflection coefficient S11 of torus radius R for antenna resonance

frequency f0 . We can observe in the graph that value of reflection coefficient for resonance frequency

is practically constant for R > 230 . For radius length range R = 370 value of reflection coefficient

for resonance coefficient is set at the highest values, approx. 18.0 dB.

6. CONCLUSIONS

In order to verify if numerical analysis carried out in previous chapters are correct some models

of antennas were built practically and their basic parameters were measured. As part of research

the following antennas were built: planar and three cylindrical antennas with radius of curvature

R = , 2, 4.

Practically built antennas have very similar conditions to results obtained during computer-

aided numerical simulation in CST Studio. Discrepancies between resonance frequencies of built

antennas and simulation results stay at the level of a single percent.

The research presents analysis results of impact of conformal antenna radius of curvature an-

tennas (for shapes: cylinder, sphere, torus) on their basic parameters. In order to verify obtained

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium Proceedings 305

numerical results some models of conformal antennas were built and tested.

As results from presented analysis the radius of curvature of the surface on which microstrip

antenna was placed clearly affects the performance of this antenna for low values of R < 0 . For

large values of the radius of surface curvature the impact is negligibly low, for the transition areas

it stays at several or ten-odd percent.
