This thesis presents telemetry and GPS antenna designs for a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV). The telemetry antenna type is selected as a monopole, which is to be mounted under the bottom of MAV. A prototype of the telemetry antenna was designed, built, and tested at 2.45 GHz. For the UPS antenna, several types of antennas were examined. Helix, conical spiral, tripole, and crossed-dipole antenna types were designed and simulated using computer software. Additionally, microstrip and slotted-ring antenna types were presented. The antenna computations were performed using the Numerical- Electromagnetics Code (NEC)
