In this paper, a conformal loaded printed sleeve dipole antenna operating in 800MHz to 3000MHz frequency band is designed and presented with measured results. The wide band characteristics are achieved using sleeve configuration along with capacitive loading. The proposed antenna has VSWR ≤ 3:1 with good radiation efficiency and omni-directionality. The proposed antenna is designed in CST Microwave StudioTM and fabricated using photolithography technique. As the antennas is printed on 10 mils thick RT Duroid 5880TM substrate. The antenna is flexible and can be conformed to given cylindrical shaped platform. The proposed conformal antenna finds wide applications in avionics and wireless communication systems
