Abstract: This paper emphasizes the design of Sierpinski carpet fractal antenna to miniaturize the antenna array of UHF Spaced antenna Wind profiler radar that operates at 445 MHz. The proposed antenna is designed using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) where aluminium is used as a patch and ground with air as dielectric substrate due to it’s zero loss tangent .patch is separated from ground with help of hinges and fed with 50 ohm coaxial probe. The Sierpinski fractal antenna is designed till third iteration so as to reduce its size and weight by 33 percent.
