Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of the antenna pattern on the communication time between a ground station and a low earth orbit satellite with passive attitude control, i.e. the antenna is nadir pointing. Two low profile antennas that fit on a 3-unit CubeSat are considered, namely a high gain patch and a low gain monopole-like patch antenna. The communication system is for high speed S-band communication.
