Compact Range - An Overview

Antenna measurements in the far-field require that the antenna under test (AUT) be illuminated by a uniform plane wave. A compact antenna test range creates a plane wave field at distances considerably shorter than those needed under conventional far-field criteria. This shorter distance allows a compact range to be conveniently located near test or integration facilities and by placing it in a shielded anechoic chamber, interferences from external sources can be eliminated. The enclosed system is equally protected from weather conditions, and confidential information is better secured.

This document presents the Compact Range Systems and Solutions offered by MVG. Inside you'll find information on compact range subsystems, advantages of compact ranges, and guidelines for standard compact range solutions. Precision installation, alignment, and field probe verification of quiet zone quality are all services provided as standard elements of compact range systems.The information in this brochure is non-exhaustive.
