Paper Abstract

A novel but intuitive antenna design to achieve both broad frequency bandwidth as well as good efficiency is presented. This design utilizes unfurlable folded-dipole with its length mechanically tuned to specified operational frequency. Such antenna has been proposed for subsurface sensing on Mars surface and its prototype was built and tested. The test results verified the desired bandwidth and efficiency feature.
