Compact Wide-Beam Circularly Polarized Antenna with Stepped Arc-Shaped Arms for CNSS Application
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 71, 141-148, 2017
Abstract
A single-feed circularly polarized wide-beam antenna is proposed for Compass Navigation Satellite System (CNSS) application. The antenna consists of four stepped arc-shaped arms, which are applied to generate circularly polarized radiation. To broaden the beamwidth, each arm is split up into two horizontal arc-shaped parts and one vertical part. The proposed antenna is simulated, fabricated and tested. The measured results show that the 10-dB return loss band of the proposed antenna is from 2.37 GHz to 2.65 GHz and the 3-dB axial ratio band from 2.42 GHz to 2.55 GHz, covering the receiving band (2.49175 GHz ± 4.08 MHz) of CNSS. Its 3-dB AR beamwidth is 181° at 2.491 GHz. For the horizontal radiation pattern of the proposed antenna at 5° elevation angle, the RHCP gain is greater than -1.1 dBic, and the out-of-roundness is 1 dB. Additionally, the proposed antenna has a size of 0.37λ0×0.37λ0×0.11λ0 with respect to 2.491 GHz.
