AbstractWith the increasing sophistication of telemetry and tracking systems, an omnidirectional antenna plays a major role in assuring adequate telemetry system signal to noise ratio regardless of test platform orientation. However, the increased demands on antenna performance often impact the antenna complexity, size and weight. This paper describes a simple yet extremely rugged antenna designed to conformally mount to a large diameter missile and provide omnidirectional coverage at four discrete frequency bands while minimizing structural impact on the missile.
