This paper proposes a new switched beam array optimized for 2.45 GHz wireless indoor applications. The antenna supports directional communication to enable spatial reusability, and polarization diversity to mitigate multipath propagation. It also supports absolute 2D target localization using measurements from a single anchor node. The paper describes the antenna design, the implementation and the experimental characterization, along with its positioning applications. The localization results obtained with data collected from indoor measurements, showing an average localization error as low as 1.7 m.
