In this presentation we consider the features and performance of a large serrated-edge compact range reflector. This is a straightforward innovation from earlier compact range reflectors. The virtual vertex reflector is a paraboloidal surface truncated to exclude the vertex. This layout provides the advantages of better use of reflector surface are, reduced feed blockage, and reduced feed backscatter. The design is made economical by the use of serrations.
