Research summary

Timothy's research interests are centred in the performance challenges of Conformal Antenna Array Design. Conformal Antenna Arrays are employed in a wide range of functions, from Aerospace and Defence to Medical Imaging. It is proposed that a coherent understanding of the effects of aperture curvature on the performance of antenna arrays will allow a wider range of use cases for conformal arrays, at a reduced cost and risk to the designer and hence the end user.
