The project provided research and development of conformal beamforming array (CBA) design that can be tested on a fuselage/wing portion of a small surveillance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or a commercial UAV model. This product can also be used in passive radar for the detection of low flying objects by increasing the angular coverage beyond that is offered by conventional planar antenna arrays.
