Design and Analysis of a CPW-Fed Broadband Conical Conformal Antenna
A CPW-fed microstrip monopole antenna which is conformal to a conical surface is presented in this paper. It has a simple structure printed on a substrate with dielectric constant of 2.55 and thickness of 0.2mm. By the aid of electromagnetic simulation software of CST Microwave Studio, the main influencing parameters of the antenna are simulated and analyzed, the difference between planar antenna and conical conformal antenna has been discussed, and the optimized physical model has been achieved. The simulated result shows the proposed CPW-fed conical conformal antenna has a broad bandwidth property that covers from 6.2 to 20GHz(VSWR 2), and it is suitable for wideband radar applications.
