We have proposed the design, performance and analysis of a novel dual band antenna for radar communication. The working frequency of the antenna is 1.55 and 6 GHz and it is designed on a Rogers RT/Duroid 6202 laminate substrate (dielectric constant = 2.2). The length and width of the patch are respectively 15 and 20 mm, while the length (l) and width (w) of the slots are respectively 14 and 1 mm with a 10 mm feed length. We have used IE3D Zealand (Ver-12) for obtaining the simulation result and analysis of our proposed antenna. The results are analyzed by investigating current distribution, S(1,1), elevation pattern, directivity pattern and voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR). Our antenna finds both L band (1–2 GHz) and C band (4–8 GHz) applications where it can be effectively used for RADAR application.
