GPS Antennae for Satellite Application
This paper presents an L1-band (1575.42MHz), circularly polarized GPS (Global positioning system) antennae for nanosatellite Satellite Based Automatic- Identification System (SB-AIS) application. The proposed receiver patch antennae are designed using different methods which receive GPS signals from the GPS satellites to track the position of the AIS satellite. A minimum of three to four satellites is required to determine the location of the satellite. These microstrip patch antennae are simulated using HFSSV.18 software, which satisfies all the standard requirements such as good impedance matching, miniaturization, required bandwidth and beam width of the satellite.
