A periodic substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) structure based conformal leaky-wave antenna (LWA) is presented. The LWA is capable of scanning its beam from near backfire, backward endfire, through the broadside to the forward direction. The-10-dB reflection coefficient bandwidth of the antenna is 7.428-10.47 GHz. The gain of the antenna is greater than 10 dBi throughout the beam scan range from-84° to +19°with a variation of source frequency from 7.3 to 10.3 GHz.
