This report examines how modeling and simulation M and S improves the initial design phase optimizing telemetry antenna placement. This multi-physics software is used to create antenna modeling, placement, and radiation pattern. Ultimately, the software facilitated the trade-off analysis between three predetermined antenna placement locations. In order to demonstrate the benefits of M and S, three distinct antenna positions analyzed optimal placement with a focus given to ground plane. The goal of the simulations was to optimize radiation pattern uniformity coupled with the best usable beam angle. The result of this M and S work identified an optimized location for antenna placement resulting in a pod modification to support the new location with low cost and timesaving.
