A full-wave method of moments solution for infinite arrays of stripline-fed tapered slot antennas is described. The formulation of the problem is sufficiently general to permit performance evaluation of most of the geometries that have been proposed for stripline-fed antennas as well as of several other types of array antennas. Computed results for some well-known antenna arrays are presented to demonstrate the validity and accuracy of the method. Excellent agreement with published results has been obtained for scattering from corrugated surfaces and grounded dielectric slabs and for the input impedance of dipole and monopole arrays. Catastrophic effects such as scan blindness are accurately predicted. A sample result showing the measured and computed input impedance of a stripline-fed tapered slot antenna array is also presented
