In this paper, we proposed the design process and the deployment mechanism of a quadrifilar helix antenna presented. The antenna are proposed to operate in the UHF frequency band. They are composed of conductors that are embedded and supported by innovative structural techniques. This allows efficient folding, packaging and deployment once in space. The conductors in the quadrifilar helix antenna are composed of Brass and copper. The new aspects of these designs lie in their structures and deployment mechanisms. A comparison is executed between both designs and their potential deployment possibility from CubeSats is also investigated.
