The Finite Element Radiation Model (FERM) code is applied to examine radiation patterns and input impedance of various antenna configurations on complex helicopters. This paper addresses the strengths and weaknesses of the FERM code when applied in antenna analysis and is compared with other national codes, such as the Numerical Electromagnetics Code (NEC). In addition, guidelines are outlined for various applications of the code.
