Dual Stacked Wideband Microstrip Antenna Array for Ku-Band Applications
A microstrip antenna possesses many advantages such as low profile, light weight, small volume, conformal and mass production in addition to low Cost. This paper presents design of dual stacked microstrip patch antenna for operating frequency of 12.5 GHz. Investigations show that the proposed antenna has wide bandwidth and for the overall improvement of the gain two element arrays has been designed. This makes the proposed antenna working in Ku-band with satisfactory bandwidth, gain and radiation characteristics.
