Hologram measurements are becoming more and more popular as a reliable method for identifying bad elements and the tuning of active phased array antennas. Relying on holographic data to adjust phase shifters and attenuators in these antennas can give undesired results if the accuracy of the data is poor. Often measurements can be improved if the error sources can be isolated and quantified. This paper presents an approach to producing a hologram accuracy budget based on the NIST 18-term error budget created for near-field measurements. A set of hologram accuracy terms is identified and data is presented showing the typical hologram accuracy that can be expected from a near-field scanner.
