Spherical near-field testing and other specialized antenna measurements require precise range and positioner alignment. This paper presents a method based on optical techniques to conveniently measure and monitor both range alignment and the positioner axis orthogonality and intersection. The hardware requirements consist of a theodolite and a unique target mirror assembly viewable from either side.
