The Micro strip antenna for microwave life detection system is used for the search and rescue of victims trapped under the rubble of collapsed building during the earthquake or other disasters. The performance and advantages of microstrip antennas such as low Weight, low profile, and low cost made them the perfect choice for microwave life detection system. They have the capability to integrate with microwave circuits and therefore they are very well suited for applications such as microwave life detectors, navigation systems, cell devices, WLAN applications, navigation systems and many others. In this Paper the design of a single element microstrip patch antenna and microstrip patch antenna with slots for a microwave life detection system are compared using IE3D software.
