The research, directed to the realization of the base station antenna system with the necessary directional characteristics and controlled radiation polarization, was done. Curved antenna array is proposed, its mathematical model is developed. The universal algorithm of the antenna array calculation and analysis is developed. Antenna array consists of elements with controlled radiation polarization. The element of antenna array is reasonably chosen as a logarithmic spiral and its numerical modelling is performed in order to choose optimal geometrical parameters.
