Abstract: This paper proposes a novel slotted circular microstrip patch antenna with reduced ground plane for covering a wide variety of applications such as S, E, G, X and Ku-band. The overall size of the suggested antenna is 30 X 30 mm2 . The main objective of this study is to utilize the reduced ground plane technique for obtaining a dual band behavior with wide bandwidth of the suggested antenna design. Further, a rectangular slot is cut in the circular patch to cover lower frequency bands (S, E and G) with appreciable return loss and increase of impedance bandwidth for the upper band (X and Ku). Excitation is provided to the antenna through a microstrip feed line. The antenna was simulated employing Computer Simulation Technology Microwave Studio Version 16.0 (CST MWS V16.0) software that is supported by a technique of finite integration. The design process, parametric study, simulation results along with measurements for the proposed microstrip patch antenna (MPA) operating over a number of frequency bands simultaneously are presented and discussed.
