Abstract: Present paper focuses on design and simulation of an inset fed rectangular microstrip patch antenna for GPS applications. The proposed antenna is designed at frequency 1.9 GHz which comes in L-Band region and simulated using Electromagnetic Simulator such as HFSS simulation software with three different dielectric substrates and comparing their performance characteristics such as gain, bandwidth, beam width, VSWR and return loss. The simulation results shows that the maximum bandwidth is obtained with FR4 substrate and the minimum bandwidth is found with Arlon AD320 substrate, where as the maximum gain obtained with air (vaccum) substrate. The proposed antenna has been designed for the range of 1.9 GHz and which is highly suitable for GPS applications. 
Keywords: Dielectric constant, Return loss, Inset Fed and VSWR etc.
