A new method based on the geodesic constant has been developed by the authors for the surface ray tracing on an ogive. The surface ray geometric parameters required in the high frequency EM calculations are obtained in explicit analytical form. The ogive is treated as a coordinate surface of the bispherical coordinate system which is a geodesic coordinate system. All the ray geometric parameters are obtained in one-parameter form in terms of the First Geodesic Constant h. These ray parameters may be used in the antenna radiation pattern, mutual coupling and radar cross section calculations.
