This paper describes the first experience gained with a new carbon composite compact range reflector (C³R²). The reflector’s backup structure is made entirely of carbon fiber reinforced composite material. An outstanding advantage of this design is its superior mechanical and thermal-environmental stability. This yields improvement in the overall performance. We have revised the process by which compact range reflectors are designed and modeled, making use of professionally authored software. We describe the results of electromagnetic field probe measurements made at the factory. Special attention is given to new results at W-band – in the 75 to 100 GHz regime.
