construction, installation and validation of two large horizontal near-field antenna measurement ranges. These new measurement systems are located in the existing HSC satellite factory building. These ranges will be used to measure various types of directive satellite antennas both at a unit level and at spacecraft level. The facility will accommodate mechanical integration of the test articles as well. This facility is the result of Hughes committing the time and money to create a state of the art antenna measurement facility that will be highly efficient and accurate. A detailed description of this facility's configuration, design and current status will be discussed herein.
