Textile Antennas for Spacesuit Applications: Design, simulation, manufacturing, and testing of textile patch antennas for spacesuit applications.

This article presents the design, simulation, manufacturing, and testing of textile patch antennas for spacesuit applications at the frequency 2.45 GHz. Antennas are designed for dispersed placement on two suit prototypes, NDX-1 and NDX-2, both external to the suit and mounted on the inner wall of a removable, thermal layer. Movement of the wearer, along… (More)
