A WIDEBAND SQUARE SPIRAL ANTENNA FOR MULTIPLE AIRBORNE APPLICATIONS
In this article, we designed a wideband square spiral antenna with an impedance matching part that operated between
1500 – 5500 MHz (covering L, S, and C bands) for airborne uses such as Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Service, radar
altimeters, Microwave Landing System, and airborne weather radars. The impedance matching part was a designed
wideband balun. We obtained simulation results for scattering parameters, radiation patterns, antenna and system
input impedances and gain values. The results confirmed that the antenna showed good matching and radiation
characteristics within the mentioned frequency range.
