High frequency radiation patterns of on-aircraft antennas are analyzed using ray optics techniques. This is a basic study of aircraft-antenna pattern performance in which the analytic aircraft is modelled in its most basic form. The fuselage is assumed to be a perfectly conducting convex surface. The wings are simulated by arbitrarily many sided flat plates and the jet engines are treated as finite circular cylinders. The three principal plane patterns are analyzed in great detail with measured results taken to verify each solution. A volumetric pattern study is initiated with the fuselage modelled by an arbitrary convex surface of revolution.
