Microstrip antennas are widely used in wireless communications due to their advantages of low profile, light weight, low production cost, and conformability with RF circuitry. Recently, a novel reconfigurable microstrip antenna design, patch antenna with switchable slots (PASS), has been proposed to realize various functionalities such as dual frequency operation, dual band CP performance, and polarization diversity with only one patch and a single feed. In this paper, the PASS concept is used to design a compact dual band circularly polarized antenna at the UHF band for a future Mars rover mission.
