In this paper, a new design of an S-band, self phased, planar inverted-F antenna (PIFA) is proposed for low orbit nano satellite application. The antenna consists of Four PIFAs which are arranged in circular array to generate circular polarization antenna. The antenna operates at 2.35 GHz with 107 MHz bandwidth of Return Loss less than -14 dB. Results show that the antenna has circular polarization properties with 1.21 dB axial ratio and unidirectional radiation pattern. Since the proposed
