CUSF’s Patch Antenna Design Tool

Now We’re Talking

Aperture is CUSF’s one-stop tool for designing telemetry and telecommand antennas. It combines analytic methods with a fully modular plotting engine to provide total flexibility.


Aperture can build patch antenna arrays and feed networks for any dielectric material, frequency, number of patches, and polarisation.

The arrays are spaced to wrap evenly around the body tube, providing all-round coverage.

It outputs KiCAD and DXF files compatable with any manufacturing process.


Any planar RF structure can be added as a component, and incorporated seamlessly into Aperture’s recursive plotting system.

Power combiners, dividers, filters, mixers. They are all possible.
