In this paper, a modified swastika shaped slotted (MSSS) microstrip antenna is designed for multiband and ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. The analysis of the proposed microstrip antenna has been analyzed using HFSS simulation software. The multiband behavior of antenna has been achieved for UWB, Ku-band, and K-band applications. The proposed antenna covers almost entire UWB band (3.1–10.6 GHz) useful for commercial purposes such as Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz), WiMAX (3.3–3.8 GHz), and WLAN (5.15–5.825 GHz) and also useful for Ku-band (12–18 GHz) and K-band (18–27 GHz) applications. The antenna resonates at different frequencies 6.65 GHz, 13.87 GHz, 16.99 GHz, 19.52 GHz, and 27.91 GHz having return loss of −33.785 dB, −12.401 dB, −17.869 dB, −19.313 dB, and −13.267 dB, respectively. Its radiation characteristics show that it has better UWB and multiband performances for wireless applications.
