Title : Compact Multiband Antenna for NavIC Application
Dr.Parimala P, Kushal Kumar P,

Abstract : Navigation with Indian Constellation (NavIC) applications, receiver antenna has to resonate at one or more of NavIC bands L1(1575 MHz), L5(1176 MHz) and S (2492 MHz) bands. Here prototypes of Single Band, Dual Band and Triband antennas are designed and validated for NavIC frequencies. Single band (L5–band) antenna of low cost and electrically small size is simulated and verified. A double band antenna for L1 and S band designed and fabricated is improvised with its return loss and Gain parameters using Low Noise Amplifier (LNA). A unique all-Metallic Tri band antenna designed is simulated and fabricated and tested for the performance in L1, L5 and S bands, without LNA. These antennas can be used for tracking purposes. The designed antennas measure (45.14mm x 58mm x1.56mm), (40mm x 40mm x 1.56mm), (30mm x 80mm x 8mm) with Single band, Dual band and Triband antennas respectively, which are all electrically small antennas. The evolution of antennas for NavIC application from Single band antenna to Dual band antenna with low inherited gain and increasing the gain by adding LNA and to Triband antenna with good inherited gain is conveyed.
