Square Patch Antennas find wide range in practical modern communication system. The novel idea employed in this paper is to use Sausage Minkowski of square patch antenna as a candidate for using in Global Positioning System (GPS) applications. The antenna has been designed to operate at frequency resonance of 1.575 GHz which is the upper GPS band (L1). The proposed antenna is designed and simulated using CST Studio suite version-2014. The proposed antenna has been simulated on substrate TMM4 of relative permittivity equals to 4.5 and thickness of 1.6 mm. The results are reported in terms of reflection coefficient, VSWR, directivity and gain. According to our results, the antenna at 2nd iteration has gain 4.61dB, VSWR is 1.2 and reduce in area of patch about 42.8% less than 0 iteration. The antenna is more efficient by applying fractal geometry.
