. The suitability of the Vivaldi antenna for enhancing the potential of the cylindrical antenna will be investigated by simulating it using an electromagnetic software tool (WIPL-D). We aim in this project. More attractive feature of a Vivaldi antenna is that it produces symmetrical end-fire beam with a reasonable gain and low side lobes. and for emerging applications. The structure is simple. efficient and lightweight. ABSTRACT In modern communication systems. The antennas are also used in radio telescopes which are extensively used in space research programs. such as those for satellite links and mobile communications. such as wireless local area networks often require compact antennas at low cost. Vivaldi antenna generally known as a tapered slot antenna exhibits wide band performance over several octaves of bandwidth. at developing a Vivaldi antenna optimized in the WIPL-D environment for exhibiting identical E and H plane radiation pattern over an octave band starting from 250 MHz to 500 MHz. This project focuses on building a new radio telescope to be fitted with a Vivaldi antenna. Raman Research Institute (RRI) is planning to build such a radio telescope.AIM  Developing a Vivaldi antenna optimized in the WIPL-D environment for exhibiting identical E and H plane radiation pattern over an octave band starting from 250 MHz to 500 MHz.

.  Vivaldi technology is less vulnerable to rain fade providing powerful and focused bandwidth.  Vivaldi enables high-speed uplinks and downlinks and allows the use of small antennas for end users. highly targeted coverage for fixed and broadcast services. allowing for a range of satellite applications.ADVANTAGES OF VIVALDI ANTENNA:  Vivaldi provides high bandwidth.  Vivaldi is designed for satellite communications exclusively. eliminating competition and signal interference from other communications systems.
