Applications of Portable Near-Field Antenna Measurement Systems

Author: Greg Hindman

Portable near-field measurement systems can provide significant flexibility to both large companies seeking to increase their antenna test capabilities, and small companies looking for their first investment in a test range. There are many unique applications for portable near-field antenna measurement systems in addition to their use for standard antenna performance measurements. Some additional applications include flightline testing, anechoic chamber quiet zone imaging, and EMI testing.

Many of NSI's near-field systems have been portable designs, capable of being set up in a small lab or office and easily relocated. Key features required for a portable system are rapid setup, simplicity of use, low cost, and accuracy. This paper will be focused on practical experience with installing, calibrating, and operating portable near-field measurement systems. It will also cover tradeoffs in their design, and usage in a variety of applications.
