Abstract

See full text

The present invention relates to an antenna system which is capable of multiband operation from a single antenna aperture. The system provides a high degree of design freedom for achieving desired antenna pattern shapes for all relevant frequency bands. The system achieves this pattern shaping ability by utilizing a unique array configuration which is highly adaptable. The array configuration may include a center array element for each of the relevant frequency bands. In one embodiment of the present invention, a dual frequency band antenna is provided which includes a stacked patch element as the center element in a first frequency band and a crossed dipole element, mounted on top of the stacked patch, as the center element in the second frequency band.
