A New UHF Deployable Antenna for CubeSats


This paper discusses the design of a new conical log spiral antenna that can operate at UHF frequencies. The antenna constitutes a suitable candidate for deployment on top of a 6U CubeSat system. The conical log spiral is designed to operate between 300 MHz and 600 MHz and exhibit circular polarization as well as an acceptable gain. The antenna is also required to satisfy size constraints by being compactly folded during launch and deployed successfully once in orbit.
