The use of adaptive acquisition techniques to reduce the overall test time in planar near-field antenna measurements was presented in [1] & [2]. In those publications the concept of a decision function to track the uncertainty of a measurement as the data acquisition proceeds and also to adapt the acquisition region dynamically, was introduced. In this publication we build upon that work and present the concept of near-field array initialization. This is tested on different antennas and simulation results are presented. We also present actual measurement results to validate simulations that have to date been used to demonstrate advantages of the adaptive techniques.
