Cylindrical array antennas are mainly utilized when full azimuth scanning is required, however in many practical applications where a curved platform is available, such as missiles, ships and aircrafts, full azimuth scanning is not required [11, 12].
The cylindrical patch [11] used to be adopted in order to solve the feeding problem, but the cost of constructing such a cylindrical array antenna is usually high, since the antennas had to conform to the cylindrical ground surface.
