A mechanically robust, horizontally polarized dual-band GPS antenna with improved performance in cluttered signal environments

Antennas are ubiquitous in devices and systems used by consumers, industry, and government. Often, these systems employ multiple antennas which can result in undesired interference that reduces the effectiveness of sensitive GPS systems. A need exists for GPS antennas that both resist coupling with neighboring antennas and can withstand harsh environmental conditions.
