Spherical near-field measurements require an increased level of sophistication and care to achieve accurate results. This paper will demonstrate an automated set of self-comparison tests, which can be used for establishing and optimizing a spherical system's performance. An over-determined set of measurements can help to qualify positioner alignment, range reflection levels, truncation effects, and additional parameters of interest. These results will help in optimizing the test configuration to achieve accurate near-field measurement results.
