In this paper, we have proposed the idea of designing a pyramidal conformal array antenna and install it on a moving vehicle. Uniform circular planar array is used and it is replicated to design pyramidal shape conformal array antenna. Single panel circular planar array at 72 degree and at 42 degree is used to build the array geometry of pyramidal shape conformal array. By using circular arrays at 42 degree and at 72 degree the 3-D radiation pattern of pyramidal conformal array antenna has been shown. By using same pyramidal conformal array antenna with different phase slopes the idea of tracking target in the air and on ground is introduced. The applications of pyramidal conformal phased array radar system in defense and in automotive industry are presented in the end.
