Since the middle of 1970's, the research and development activities on satellite communications for mobiles such as ships, aircraft and land mobiles have been continued in many countries and organizations. Typical programs are the ETS-V in Japan, MSAT-X in USA, MSAT in Canada and PROSAT in Europe. In implementing mobile satellite communications, a vehicle antenna is one of the most importent key technologies. This paper reviews system requirements, design, performances, research activities and future prospects on vehicle antennas.
