A. Narayanan, R, V. Priya, M, V., K, N., R, J. Surya, and V, M., “Design of Axial Mode Helical Antenna Array for NOAA-18 HRPT Reception at 1700MHz.”, PISER12 Progress In Science and Engineering Research Journal , vol. 02, no. 06, pp. 381-385, 2014.[Abstract]

This paper presents a new design technique for an axial mode helical antenna array to achieve a gain of 22dBi at 1700MHz for an efficient NOAA-18 HRPT reception. The geometrical parameters for a helical antenna are obtained by Particle Swarm Optimization. Design technique such as introduction of parasitic elements have been adopted and the simulation is done using 4NEC2. More »»
