In this paper, the satellite coverage of GPS antennas on a small, highly dynamic spinning projectile is investigated. Since the projectile has varying pitch and roll, the antenna needs to have omni-directional coverage. A patch antenna is selected as the basic element, but it by itself cannot provide the necessary coverage. To obtain the desired coverage, multiple elements are placed around the circumference of the projectile. Then, we investigate the best way to combine the responses of the… CONTINUE READING
