AbstractTwo telemetry and communications antennas for the Shuttle Orbiter are described. Each antenna is circularly polarized and flush mounted under the thermal protection tiles. The quad antenna provides two beam positions selected by an electromechanical switch, and uses two cavity backed crossed dipole elements radiating through reduced size circular apertures called irises. The GPS/hemi antenna covers three frequencies, with 160E cone coverage at two L-band frequencies and 120E cone coverage at S-band.
