If I'm seeing that correctly that's not really a conformal array. A conformal array actually uses sensors embedded in the skin and the array conforms to the shape of the aircraft, hence the name. This just looks like a rectangular array behind a leading edge made of radome material. Similar to what General Dynamics had in mind for the AESA arrays on it's ATF entry.
