This paper reports on the design, fabrication and installation of the first large compact range whose reflector was machined in one piece. The overall size of this reflector is 30 feet high and 43 feet wide and it produces a test zone 18 feet high and 30 feet wide. It features a novel serrated edge design and a unique multi-feed system. This compact range was fabricated under contract to the U.S. Navy and is currently installed at the Pacific Missile Test Range at Pt. Mugu, California.
