(57) Abstract:
(EN): A combination satellite and terrestrial antenna system for a single-source application. A first embodiment includes a cross dipole for receiving the circularly polarized satellite signals, and a plurality of monopoles for receiving linearly polarized terrestrial signals. The mono-poles are arranged symmetrically about the cross dipole. Alternative embodiments include a helix antenna for receiving the satellite signals, and one or more linear antennas arranged symmetrically with respect to the helix for the terrestrial signals.
(FR): L'invention porte sur un système combiné d'antennes satellite et terrestre destiné à une application source. Une première réalisation comprend deux dipôles en croix destinés à recevoir les signaux satellite polarisés de manière circulaire, et une pluralité d'unipoles destinés à recevoir des signaux terrestres polarisés de manière linéaire. Les unipoles sont disposés symétriquement autour des dipôles en croix. D'autres réalisations comprennent une antenne hélicoïdale destinée à recevoir les signaux satellites, et une ou plusieurs antennes linéaires disposées symétriquement par rapport à l'hélice pour les signaux terrestres.
