Abstract:

This thesis presents the design of two circularly polarized patch antennas for operation at 1.767 GHz and at 2.207 GHz for receiving and transmitting respectively on NPSATl satellite. The design requirements for the antennas include a VSWR of less than or equal to 21 for 50 Omega reference impedance. The study includes of the development of a three- dimensional antenna model antenna simulation and analysis of results based on various outputs of the CST Microwave Studio Finite Difference Time Domain FDTD software package.
