Design of a Special Shaped Microstrip Antenna With Wide Band Characteristics
Conformal antenna will play a vital role in near future in various applications such as high speed aircraft, missiles, airplanes, satellites etc. In this paper a special shaped conformal microstrip antenna has been proposed with wideband characteristics. This antenna can be used for 4.19-5.20 GHz, 5.70-6.22 GHz, 8.04-8.81 GHz and 9.28-10.68 GHz frequency band. Microstrip antennas have been used widely in wireless communication due to their light weight, low profile, low cost and ease of fabrication and excellent compatibility with planar integrated circuits and even non planar surfaces.
