An Investigation on End-Fire Radiation from Linearly Polarized Microstrip Antenna for Airborne Systems
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 59, 9-24, 2017
Abstract
In airborne systems, where low aerodynamic drag is urgently required, an end-fire antenna is suitable to be used. An effort to develop such an antenna, using planar elements, is described in this paper. Here, a new kind of Microstrip Slotted Antenna with end-fire properties is presented. For investigating the end-fire radiation from microstrip antenna, three antenna elements are proposed during the study - 1) Single Patch Single Feed Microstrip Slotted Antenna, 2) Dual Patch Single Feed Microstrip Slotted Antenna and 3) Dual Patch Dual Feed Microstrip Slotted Antenna. All these proposed antennas are designed and simulated in two different EM tools, which are - CST Microwave Studio (MWS) based on time domain solver and ANSYS HFSS based on frequency domain solver. Thereafter, these antenna prototype models have been fabricated and tested. Good agreement is obtained between the simulated and measured results.
