Title: Design and Performance Analysis of 1x8 Patch Antenna Array for X-Band Applications
Author: Makkawi, Hamid Mubarak Mustafa
Abstract: Antennas play an integral part in wireless communication system. Microstrip patch antennas are the most suited for aerospace and mobile applications because of their geometrical shapes, light weight and implementations. They can be designed in a variety of shapes in order to obtain enhanced gain and bandwidth. The aim of this thesis is to design, develop and simulate a linear patch antenna array working at 9.5 GHZ and integrated on a microwave laminate. First, a single patch antenna with a direct feed and an inset feed is designed and compared to each other then 1X8 power divider is designed and simulated then eight rectangular radiating patches on a low dielectric constant substrate are arranged in linear configuration to achieve required radiation properties. About 15 dB gain with 12 degree beam width is achieved with the designed antenna array compared to about 6 dB and 72 degree gain and beam width respectively for a single patch antenna, which makes this antenna array suitable for X band applications such as radar and integration with electronic warfare receivers.
