Two antenna designs are described that are both fully integrated into Fiber Metal Laminate fuselage panels. Full integration in this context means that the antennas are flush with the fuselage skin on the outside of the aero structure, while maintaining the structural properties of the FML panel. The antennas are designed to resonate at GNSS and at VHF frequency bands. Design considerations are discussed and preliminary results are presented.
