Abstract: A substantial rectangular shaped X-band slot antenna for Satellite and Terrestrial Applications is presented in this paper. The antenna has an ascertain dimensions of 18.5mm × 8.95mm × 0.72mm which indicates that the proposed antenna has low profile when compared with typical slot antennas. A resonating microstrip feeding line method is provided to excite the antenna. The proposed antenna covers the frequency range of 7.5GHz to 15.5GHz. The antenna has a peak return loss value of -24.77dB at 11.1GHz when operated at 8.5GHz frequency in the X band. The antenna is designed on FR4 epoxy substrate with a dielectric constant of 4.4 and has a loss tangent of 0.02. This antenna can be used in the fields of terrestrial, Radio Detection and Ranging(RADAR) and satellite Communication. The designed antenna works efficiently in the frequency range of X band(8GHz to 12GHz) and covers 41% of Ku band frequency range additionally. The proposed antenna is simpler to design.
