Original Abstract

In the paper, the design of an antenna array consisting of circular slots is presented. Since the antenna is expected being integrated into textile upholstery of a vehicle, a 3D textile material is considered as a substrate in the design. Metallic layers are screen-printed by a silver paste. The array is fed by a textile integrated waveguide which walls are sewed by a conductive thread. The array is designed for the center frequency of the band-group VI (8 GHz) of ultra-wideband communication channels. At the center frequency, the measured realized gain is about 10 dB, and the measured axial ratio equals to 4. The array operates with right-hand circular polarization. The design is verified by measurements and simulations.
