This paper details a recent advance that, for the first time, enables the Mathematical Absorber Reflection Suppression (MARS) technique to be successfully deployed to correct measurements taken using plane-polar near-field antenna test systems with reduced AUT-to-probe separation. This paper provides an overview of the measurement, transformation, and post-processing. Preliminary results of range measurements are presented and discussed that illustrate the success of the new planepolar MARS technique by utilising redundancy within the near-field measured data that enables comparisons to be obtained and verified by using two existing, alternative, scattering suppression methodologies.
