Abstract:

An antenna system is proposed for the purpose of FM, TV-VHF, and TV-UHF PSYPOS broadcast applications. The antenna system incorporates a radiating structure that is small, light weight, and conformal. A circularly polarized beam is broadcast from an aircraft towards nadir, illuminating the region below the craft with a horizontally-polarized signal, yielding polarizations pointing in both the North-South and East-West directions. This approach helps minimizes polarization related fading as the relative positions of the transmitter and receiver change. Antenna bandwidth is 2:1 at minimum, allowing one antenna to cover each of the three bands in its entirety. This low-cost, highly manufacturable antenna incorporates sheet metal components and will easily operate at the desired 2kW input levels.
