Abstract

VSAT technology is one of the technologies that can be used to reach and connect internet networks on islands. Signal weakening can increase delay and packet loss, delay and packet loss are important factors that must be considered in VSAT network data communication. To be able to cover these weaknesses can be done by having a strong antenna gain. Antennas with strong gain can improve the quality and durability of the signal obtained. In general, antennas consisting of parabolic reflectors and horn transmitters are used in VSAT systems due to the high gain specifications of this type of antenna. Axial corrugated horns are among the most commonly used types of horn feeders in the industry. Therefore, we propose an axial corrugated horn antenna design to obtain a high-gain antenna design as a parabolic feeder for Ku-Band VSAT applications. We simulate and optimize the proposed design using CST Microwave Studio. The proposed corrugated horn antenna shows characteristics at a receiver working frequency of 10.7–12.75 GHz with the highest gain of 15.9 dB, VSWR of 1.5:1, and linear polarization. characteristics at a transmitter working frequency of 13.75–14.5 GHz with the highest gain of 16.9 dB, VSWR of 1.5:1, and linear polarization. This study has obtained the development of a axial corrugated horn antenna design structure as a parabolic feeder for Ku-Band VSAT application and is expected to help pave the way for the development of research on the application of horn antennas.
