In an earlier paper the virtual vertex compact range reflector was introduced and data from a specific design was reported. This paper describes the extension of the virtual vertex serrated edge concept to other reflectors that serve a wider range of application. Two new 12 ft focal length reflectors have been built that possess 3 ft and 6 ft diameter symmetric test zones. We describe the electromagnetic considerations and the mechanical design approach that has been used for these reflectors. We demonstrate the performance with field probe data showing the excellent surface accuracy of these units.
