Design and Development of Compact Conformal Microstrip Antenna at S-Band
A compact microstrip antenna at S-Band is described in this work. This paper presents the theoretical and experimental investigations on conformal 90° Sectoral circular microstrip antenna using shorting wall. The performance of antenna characteristics is obtained using FEM based HFSS software and the computed results are verified by measurement. Here, microstrip antenna is loaded with shorting wall to achieve frequency reduction of about 75 per cent. The antenna characteristics were studied with radome surrounded by metallic ring. The radiation characteristics of antenna mounted on vehicle body is carried out. The antenna has moderate gain and wider coverage in roll plane as well as azimuth plane and may be used as small, compact antenna for onboard telemetry applications.
