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.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
