Very thin antenna structures with integrated electronics will provide better tactical deployment and permit implementation on non-dedicated platforms. To cope with radiation patterns significantly degraded by mechanical distortions on thin structures, we have developed some innovative algorithms. We present techniques permitting to recover high quality patterns in all directions, including side lobes management. The lightness of computation allows true time compensation to be provided even for very large antenna arrays.
