In this paper, a novel technique for the approximation of three-dimensional (3-D) antenna radiation patterns is presented. The proposed method combines the two principal cuts in order to acquire an adequate estimate of the 3-D antenna radiation solid. The absolute error from the theoretical solution is analyzed along with other statistical measures for various types of antenna structures, namely omni-directional and directive arrays. The performance of the method is compared against other existing extrapolation algorithms. The proposed technique exhibits low approximation errors and is easily integrated into 3-D radio propagation planning tools (such as ray-tracing algorithms).
