25 GHz, and as a wideband end-fire antenna in the whole operating bandwidth (4-18 GHz).
The simulated and measured results show that the proposed LPDA can be successfully used as a wideband end-fire antenna in the whole operating bandwidth (4-18 GHz), and as an Ultra Wideband Antenna in the range 4.
As a typical printed UWB end-fire antenna, the Vivaldi antenna has both the advantages of printed antennas and end-fire antennas [10, 11], which results that it is widely used for satellite communication, remote sensing, microwave imaging, wide band scanning arrays and military applications.

Nowadays, because of high directivity and easily tunable radiation pattern [4,5], the end-fire antennas are widely used in phased array.
A novel end-fire antenna
pattern suitable for placement in thin devices
We observe (Figure 8) that for the end-fire antenna
configuration, the total power loss (in comparison with 1/r propagation model) might be as high as 3 dB at the antenna separation of 5 mm.
In this paper, we adopt a new Competitive Algorithm of Simulating Natural Tree Growth to design a conformal end-fire antenna confined to a cross structure, which usually appears in aerospace vehicles.
The system of the automated design of conformal end-fire antenna consists of the master and slave processes.
The input reflection coefficient of the fabricated conformal end-fire antenna was measured using an Agilent E8362B Network Analyzer.

in the rotodome via a duplexer.
