This paper presents a miniaturized Probe-Fed Elliptical Microstrip Patch Antenna (PF-EMPA) targeting the 8.50-10.55 GHz band for radiolocation applications. The proposed design is composed of an elliptical patch inserted into an elliptical slot. In order to achieve the authors' goals and control the impedance matching, they adjusted the offset distance from the elliptical patch to the side of the elliptical slot. As results, this paper presents the characteristics of a new microstrip patch antenna operating at 9.845 GHz (9.650 - 10.222 GHz) providing higher gain value (more than 6 dBi), and an impedance matching bandwidth of around 5.75%.
