Turnstile-Junction-Based Omnidirectional Antennas for Space Applications [Antenna Applications]


Omnidirectional biconical antennas are widely used in satellites as a constituent part of the telemetry, command, and ranging (TC&R) RF subsystems. They provide a toroidal radiation pattern, and are mainly used in combination with other low-gain antennas to provide an omnidirectional pattern [1] during transfer orbit, and for on-station communications… (More)
