The purpose of this study is to design for MOB antenna attached on safety helmet using microstrip patch antenna. The patch antenna is fabricated in 0.2 mm FR-4 substrate with $64{\times}64mm$ size. The proposed antenna is based on a slot-ring design which cover Inmarsat (1.52 ~ 1.65 GHz) and GPS (1.575 GHz) frequency band. To obtain the optimized parameters, HFSS simulator is used, and antenna is designed by optimized parameters. After antenna was etched, SMA connector was attached to the microstrip feeding line and the result between antenna simulation and measurement was analyzed. Proposed antenna is satisfied the -10 dB bandwidth requirement while simultaneously covering the 1.53 ~ 1.65 GHz.
