In this paper, the authors present antenna design and analysis for UWB applications. A novel planar UltraWideBand (UWB) antenna consists of an omega-shaped radiating patch and a partially ground plane. The antenna that makes it different from the traditional monopole antenna is that the optimization in the radiating patches shape. With this design, the return loss is lower than -10 dB in 3.1 - 10.6 GHz frequency range and the radiation pattern is highly similar to the monopole antenna. This antenna has been designed and simulated and has given wide impedance bandwidth (3.1 to 10.6 GHz), stable radiation pattern and constant gain 3 to 6dBi.
