Conical Beam Monopole Antenna Design for Chinese Area Positioning System
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 68, 193-200, 2016
Abstract
This article describes the operational principle of the satellite-based Chinese Area Positioning System (CAPS) and proposes a monopole antenna for a large anchored buoy platform in harsh marine environment. The proposed antenna is highly omnidirectional with sufficiently wide half-power beamwidth (HPBW) greater than 40˚ (i.e., not less than ±20° swing) by using a conical ground plane, taking into account the geostationary satellite position, link budget, sea conditions, volume and cost. The impedance bandwidth defined by 10 dB return loss is 750 MHz (5.60-6.35 GHz), and the main lobe direction and the half-power beamwidth are about 46° and 43° at the operating frequency 5.885 GHz, respectively. The antenna prototype has been installed on-site to test its performance in sea. The results confirm that the proposed antenna is a suitable candidate for a variety of CAPS applications in China.
