This paper presents a novel interrogation mechanism for an antenna sensor subjected to high temperatures. In sensor node, an Ultra-wide Band (UWB) microstrip antenna was used as a wireless Tx/Rx transceiver to amplify the reflected interrogation signal from the temperature-sensing element, i.e. the patch antenna-sensor. A microstrip delay line was used to connect the Tx/Rx antenna and the antenna-sensor so that the reflected signal from the sensor node is delayed and can be separated from the background clutter using time-domain (T-D) gating technique. In this paper, the principle of operation of the proposed interrogation mechanism is first discussed, followed by the design and simulations of the sensor node circuitry. Finally, a temperature test was conducted to validate the wireless temperature sensing performance of the antenna sensor.
