A cylindrical active phased array antenna was developed. A primary surveillance radar (PSR) antenna and a secondary surveillance radar (SSR) antenna are integrated conformally. The PSR antenna employs two-dimensional electronic beam scanning. The SSR antenna employs electronic beam scanning in azimuth. Advantages of this antenna, design architecture employed and measured characteristics are described.
