A wideband conformal antenna array for cognitive radio/MIMO applications
This paper presents performance results of a wideband conformal antenna array consisting of six E-patch antennas placed above a cylindrical metallic ground plane, using air as substrate material. The paper contains simulation results based on a parameterized model developed in CST Microwave Studio, as well as measurement results from a prototype. It is shown that the properties of the prototyped array are in good agreement with the simulated results. The prototyped antenna is intended to be used to in a future cognitive radio test bed.
