This paper presents a microstrip patch antenna designed using computer simulation technology (CST) Microwave Studio at a resonant frequency of 2.4 GHz. The antenna consists of three layers, the upper layer called metallic patch, the bottom layer called ground and the dielectric layer in between the conduction layers called the substrate. The antenna has the advantage of minimal weight, low profile and can maintain high performance over a wide spectrum of frequencies. As such the study focused on the novel design of a rectangular microstrip patch antenna. The performance characteristics of the antenna patch arrays elements 1X2, 1X4 and 2X2 were compared. The aim of designing an antenna with improved gain, reduced losses and use for X band applications such as radar, satellite, communication, medical applications and other wireless systems was achieved. The performance of the designed antenna in terms of radiation efficiency, gain, reflection coefficients and radiation patterns were verified and found suitable for wireless local area network (WLAN) applications.

Keyphrases: Microstrip, patch antenna, Radar Technology, radiation efficiency
