Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to show the advantage of microstrip patch designed by printing technology in solving the problem of design small-sized, low-profile on-board antenna systems for small spacecrafts consisting in the fact that these antennas have a low mass, volume, cost of the production, simplicity of construction etc. For practical application, this type of antenna was proposed to design for a new antenna system of small spacecraft «Ionosphere» included in space complex «Ionosonde» created by JSC «Corporation VNIIEM» commissioned by the Russian Federal Space Agency.
The models of UHF-band and VHF-band on-board microstrip patch antennas developed using computer-aided design Agilent Electromagnetic Professional are presented. The models parameters of the primary interest such as voltage standing-wave ratio, radiation pattern, and antenna gain were evaluated and optimized during the numerical simulation to satisfy the requirements of technical specifications for antenna system of small spacecraft «Ionosphere».

Keywords:

spacecraft, antenna–feeder device, on-board antenna, printing technologies, helix (spiral) antenna, microstrip patch antenna, radiation pattern. voltage standing wave ratio, gain
