Antenna characterization requires making large quantities of RF measurements across a known spatial position. In practice, this involves coordinated positioning equipment, test instruments, and software processing. The overhead of networking, handshaking, sequencing, triggering, and data management between these devices is often the limiting factor in total system performance. Antenna test engineers are often frustrated by slow system performance, despite using the fastest equipment available.
