Gain and Power Parameter Measurements Using Planar Near-Field Techniques

Equations are derived and measurement techniques described for obtaining gain, effective radiated power, and saturating flux density using planar near-field measurements. These are compared with conventional far-field techniques, and a number of parallels are evident. These give insight to the theory and help to identify the critical measurement parameters. Application of the techniques to the INTELSAT VI satellite are described.
