challenging thing in real world is communicating with aircraft, even though several communication technologies has been adopted for tracking and monitoring the aircraft there is no cent percent efficiency, for that an implementation of conformal antenna for transmission and reception of the signal is preferred. In radio communication and avionics a conformal antenna or conformal array is a flat radio antenna which is designed to conform or follow some prescribed shape, for example a curved conformal antenna is designed and is mounted on or embedded in a curved surface. Conformal arrays are typically limited to high frequencies in the UHF or microwave range, where the wavelength of the waves is small enough that small antennas can be used. Requirements for conformal antennas for airborne systems, increased bandwidth requirements, and multi functionality have led to heavy exploitation of printed (patch) or other slot-type antennas and the use of powerful computational tools for designing such antenna. The design and optimization of the conformal antenna can be done through simulation. The proposed antenna provides good radiation and optimal gain and easily embedded to the body of curved shapes.
