The new approach considered takes into account the maximum error of the quasi-isotropic radiation pattern relative to the ideal pattern. A design example involving a spherical satellite with quarter wave monopoles is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new approach. An investigation is conducted concerning the minimax optimization of power radiation patterns. It is shown that the minimax objective represents a useful alternative to the isotropy concept in the design of quasi-isotropic antenna systems for satellite applications.
