Abstract: This paper presents a design of substrate integrated waveguide slot array antenna for X and Ku band applications. This is a low weight and simple profile antenna covering a vast range of frequencies. A substrate integrated waveguide is formed by two rows of metallized cylinders connecting upper and bottom layer of substrate. On the metallic plate, slot arrays are etched in a periodic fashion to achieve broad bandwidth. The SIW is excited by the microstrip feeding through a tapered transition to achieve smooth flow of current. The simulated result shows that -10 dB return loss of the proposed antenna is -35 dB, -29 dB and -22 dB at 11.1 GHz, 12.7GHz and 17.6 GHz respectively. The simulated bandwidth of the design is 7.6 GHz from 10.4-18 GHz which covers X band partially and Ku band. The gain of the antenna is about 6 dB. The proposed design is simulated using 3D full wave simulator named Ansys HFSS.
