Abstract

In this paper, an X-Band Microstrip Patch antenna termed as the Cross fed rectangular array antenna has been presented with an enhanced radiation efficiency. The proposed antenna is designed and simulated using FEKO 5.5 suite. It is then fabricated on a 40 x 40mm2 Rogers RT-Duroid 5880LZ dielectric material board. This antenna is composed of a rectangular patch array in a cross fashion with four patches, each with a dimension of 12.3 mm x 9.85 mm excited using a wire-port. The antenna operates at a frequency of 11.458 GHz in the X-Band (8 – 12 GHz). It has achieved stable radiation efficiency of 80.71% with a gain of 7.4 dB at the operating frequency. It is thus inferred that this antenna can be used for X-Band applications such as in maritime navigation and airborne radars
