NSI recently completed installation of two large 7m x 7m horizontal planar scanners to support the Globalstar satellite program test activity. These systems were installed at Alcatel in France, and Alenia in Italy. These two systems are similar to the NSI system installed at Space Systems/Loral in Palo Alto, CA. described in previous AMTA papers. The companies are part of the Globalstar satellite consortium, committed to launching a constellation of satellites for mobile telephone communications. The paper will summarize the hardware configuration and the unique features of the two new test systems including high power phased array testing and the interface to the Globalstar payload for active antenna control and payload testing. In addition, range data comparing all 3 test ranges will be shown.
