The primary purpose of the work is to investigate the use of adaptive array techniques for obtaining scannable patterns from arrays on curved surfaces. The report describes the antenna patterns obtained with an experimental adaptive array on an aircraft fuselage mockup. The antenna system consisted of four flush-mounted multiturn loop elements tunable over the 200-400 MHZ band. Patterns were taken on this adaptive antenna system for a variety of frequencies, element locations, surface configurations, and for numerous angles of arrival of the desired signal. Author
