Abstract: 
BeiDou-3 navigation satellite system was officially opened in 2020. While bringing high-performance services to people around the world, the navigation system requires well-designed beiDou antennas. In this paper, we propose a wideband circularly polarized high-performance beiDou antenna. The antenna realizes wideband circularly polarized radiation through a four-port sequential feed network, and the phase imbalance of the feed network from 1.05 to 1.80 GHz is less than 7°. The manufactured antenna demonstrates a return loss of more than 13 dB and an axial ratio<3 dB over the entire global navigation satellite system (GNSS) frequency band. The right-handed circular polarization (RHCP) gain of the proposed antenna is greater than 4 dB in the GNSS low-frequency band and can reach more than 7.1 dB in the high-frequency band. Dimension of the proposed antenna is 120 mm×120 mm×20 mm, i.e., 0.54λo×0.54λo×0.09λo, whereλo is the wavelength of the center frequency. The proposed antenna connected to a GNSS receiver has tracked 12 BeiDou satellites withC/N0 ratios of GNSS signals greater than 30 dB. Such a high-performance antenna provides a basis for high-quality positioning services.

摘要:北斗三号卫星导航系统于2020年正式启用,为全球人民带来高性能服务的同时,导航系统也对北斗天线的设计提出更高要求。本文提出一种宽带圆极化高性能北斗天线。该天线通过四端口顺序馈电网络实现宽带圆极化辐射,馈电网络从1.05 GHz到1.80 GHz的相位不平衡度小于7°。制造的天线在整个全球导航卫星系统(GNSS)频带上的回波损耗大于13 dB,轴比<3 dB,右旋圆极化增益(RHCP)在GNSS低频段大于4 dB,在高频段可达7.1 dB以上。本文天线尺寸为120 mm×120 mm×20 mm,即0.54λo×0.54λo×0.09λo,其中λo是中心频率波长。设计的天线连接到GNSS接收机上搜索到12颗北斗卫星,GNSS信号的信噪比(C/N0 )大于30 dB。这种高性能天线将为人们提供高质量的定位服务。
