Abstract


Using planar-patterned metamaterial concepts, the patch antenna can
be designed with higher gain and broadened bandwidth. The concept is
applied to the conformal cylindrical patch antenna, the
planar-patterned antennas are conformed to a cylindrical surface to
form a cylindrical array with high gain and broad bandwidth. In
addition, different feeding methods have been discussed in the
paper.
