This work concerns the experimental validation of a probe compensated near-field – far-field transformation technique using a spherical spiral scanning, which allows one to significantly reduce the measurement time by means of continuous and synchronized movements of the positioning systems of the probe and antenna under test. Such a technique relies on the nonredundant sampling representations of the electromagnetic fields and makes use of a two-dimensional optimal sampling interpolation formula to recover the near-field data needed to perform the classical spherical near-field – far-field transformation. The good agreement between the so reconstructed far-field patterns and those obtained via the classical spherical near-field – far-field transformation assesses the effectiveness of the approach.
