Utilizing a Conformal Method of Moments (CMoM) with an Exact Kernel, AN-SOF overcomes these limitations, enabling accurate modeling and analysis of antennas with complex geometries. This includes high gain antennas with grid reflectors, broadcast towers with elevated radial wires close to the ground, thick dipoles, stepped cylindrical antennas, curved antennas such as helices, spirals, and loops, as well as any design involving curved, short, and closely positioned wires.

By overcoming these limitations, AN-SOF empowers engineers and researchers to design antennas with enhanced accuracy and reliability. The software not only improves the modeling and analysis of complex antenna geometries but also opens up new possibilities for antenna optimization and design across a wide range of applications.
