Design And Implementation Of A Conformal Omnidirectional Microstrip Antenna Array On Cylindrical Surface
Abstract- Design and implementation of a conformal microstrip patch antenna array on a conducting cylindrical surface for
realizing the desired omnidirectional pattern in roll plane is presented. A (14) planar microstrip patch array is devised to
ensure conformality to the specified host cylindrical surface of diameter 90 mm. The design is simulated using full wave
simulation software, HFSS and the patch antenna is designed and fabricated using PCB fabrication technology. VSWR and
radiation pattern measurements are carried out in microwave anechoic chamber. Simulation and measurement results agree
very well and give encouraging results.
