Capabilities

RF Testing
Antenna test ranges perform testing for wideband antennas, reflector antennas, wire type antennas, feeds, multi-beam antennas and phased array antennas. The facilities can test antennas from 100 MHz to 60 GHz. Measurements include Co- and Cross-pol Radiation Patterns and contours, Gain, Axial Ratio and Side Lobe Level.

Antenna Environmental Testing
The Environmental Test Labs can conduct Acoustic, Random Vibration, Temperature Cycling and Thermal Vacuum testing of Antennas. If needed Pre and Post Environmental RF testing is available.

Antenna Design
Design of reflectors, feeds, horns, wire, ultra broadband, phased array and multibeam antenna systems.
