The performance of a conformal dual patch antenna design for wireless sensor networks were measured and evaluated in a real world multi-scattering environment. Both simulated and measured radiation patterns when using the antenna as a two element phased array were measured and corresponded well. The environment was measured and show strong fading characteristics. The measured data shows that the proposed structure gives a distinct advantage to the nodes communication compared to single element antennas while keeping the form factor suitable for integration of embedded hardware.
