A Miniaturized GNSS Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna Array with AMC Virtual Ground Plane
In this contribution, the feasibility of a size-reduced Controlled Reception Pattern Antenna (CRPA) that incorporates seven radiators and an Artificial Magnetic Conductor (AMC) is investigated. The presented design is tailored for satellite navigation signal reception within the L1-Band. It allows for spatial-selective noise suppression to achieve an increased robustness against jamming equipment while maintaining small outer dimensions. The design of a miniaturized CRPA as well as measurement results of the implementation are presented.
