SIMPLE SHIP-TERMINAL ANTENNA FOR MARITIME SATELLITE COMMUNICATION

Real time communications for ships moving on the high seas can be possible only via satellites. This paper deals with the design and development of a low-cost shipborne helical antenna system for maritime satellite communications in L-Band. The antenna system is simple in design, fabrication and installation and takes care of the maximum pitch and roll motions of a medium size cargo or passenger ship ( + or - 7 degree and + or - 25 degree respectively) without the need for any stabilization platform. The antenna gain is 16.5 dB.
