This paper will discuss the system level design of a radome test system implemented in a compact range. The system includes a tracking pedestal controlled by an autotrack controller, a measurement receiver, a unique five-feed arrangement for the compact range which accommodates both tracking and measurement functions, and a laser autocollimator for coordinate system referencing. Key elements of system design include the required coordinate system transformations, the mechanical design of the positioning system and its contribution to the tracking system, and the synchronization of the autotrack controller, the measurement receiver, and the autotrack controller, the measurement receiver, and the system controller. There aspects of system design will be discussed and measurement and analysis results will be presented.
