Curved cone corrugated ground plane conical antenna has been designed and analyzed using Finite Element Method. In this paper, we introduce a novel Curved cone corrugated ground plane conical antenna for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications.

The antenna is composed of curved cone with narrow corrugation on finite ground plane and fed by a 50? coaxial cable. The designed antenna operates over impedance bandwidth (200 MHz-11.17 GHz) for return loss S11 < -10dB. Parametric studies have been carried out to arrive at the optimum antenna dimensions to have a wide bandwidth (VSWR
