The theoretical bases of the development of an microstrip antennas for unmanned aerial vehicles are presented. Antennas characterized by the directed emission, low aerodynamic resistance and mass, possibility to fully fit the unmanned aerial vehicles surface. Antenna system may includes 3-4 sector patch radiators, thin screens in order to depress side and back lobes. Article includes formulas for calculations parameters and characteristics rectangular patch radiators of linear and circular polarization such as resonant frequency, effective dielectric permittivity, patch length and width, input impedance in a feed point, coordinate of coaxial cable connection and patterns in E, H – plane for linear polarization, axial ratio, patch dimensions and bandwidth for circular polarization.
