A Compact Slotted Microstrip Antenna for X- Band Application In Satellite Communication
In this paper, the authors present the design of a rectangular shaped compact micro strip patch antenna for X- band application in satellite communication. The proposed antenna is fed using CoPlanar Waveguide (CPW) feed. The proposed antenna is designed on RT/droid 5880 substrate with thickness of 1.57 mm and relative permittivity of 2.2 having loss tangent 0.0009. The compact size of proposed antenna is 19.4x16 mm2. Parametrical study is performed to optimize the different antenna parameters. The proposed antenna is able to obtain the frequency bandwidth from 7.24GHz to 8.6GHz suitable for uplink/downlink X-band used for satellite communication.
