Designing and Improving the H-Shaped Microstrip Antenna for Better Data Transmission for Emergency S

Thursday 2:10pm - 2:40pm, CITRENZ (Ara Room 3)

The drones and other wireless equipment have been the primary communication equipment providing data using digital communication. The integrity of the communication relies upon the quality of the antenna to boost signals and transmission. Similarly, the terrain also poses challenges to reduce data transmission rate concerning the New Zealand remote environment for emergency communication.

The paper is an exploratory attempt to design a microstrip antenna with a precisely shaped patch to overcome the terrain resistance. This paper describes the design of a Microstrip patch antenna module intended for maximising data flow rate in wireless communications at a high microwave frequency. The design is simulated to validate the antenna design and transmission rate. The simulations of design antenna show a higher data rate for medical, military and commercial services in New Zealand.
