This paper present a specific set-up developed for antenna pattern measurements of probe-fed antenna with a 500mm AUT-probe distance. An example of Near-Field measurement is proposed and shows important errors on phase acquisition at 90GHz. Raw measurements are improved using a spherical correction based on laser-tracker structural data. Phase error and Near-field to Far Field transformation are strongly improved with this technique.
