This paper presents a novel algorithm for analyzing transient radiation from multielement wire systems mounted on arbitrarily shaped, three-dimensional, perfectly conducting bodies. The algorithm simultaneously characterizes the transient radiation properties of the antenna and the performance of the feed network via a hybrid integral-equation/finite difference scheme. Numerical examples that validate and demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed scheme are presented.
