A Conformal Circularly Polarized Series-Fed Microstrip Antenna Array Design

Abstract

A conformal circularly polarized series-fed microstrip array design for broadside radiation is presented. The array aperture under design is conformal to a cylindrical surface of a given radius. The approach we present primarily addresses focusing of the circularly polarized major lobe of the conformal array by proper dimensioning of the aperture spacings. The proposed analytical models yield the values of the element spacings within the series-fed conformal array aperture, and elementspecific spacings of the patch radiators within each circularly polarized element. These spacings are critical to produce a broadside circularly polarized major lobe at the design frequency. Subsequently, each array element is equipped with an in-line matching quarter wave transformer. Measured characteristics of the X-band conformal array validate the proposed design approach.
