Microstrip antennas are relatively inexpensive to manufacture and design because of the simple 2D (2- Dimensional) physical geometry. They are usually designed to operate at UHF and higher frequencies because the size of the antenna is directly tied to the wavelength at resonance frequency. In this paper, an S-shaped patch antenna array is designed for GPS application. The antenna array is designed to enhance the overall performance characteristics of a radiating system at 1.6GHz. Simulation models are developed for S-patch antenna and S-patch antenna array using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS).
