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 (14) 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.
