Abstract:

In this thesis, the final design for the Petite Amateur Navy Satellite PANSAT antenna system is constructed, integrated and validated. The antenna elements and matching network are field tested and compared to the Numerical Electromagnetics Code NEC model. The final free space radiation pattern and its power gain distribution will be used to help track PANSATs rotation during its orbit.
