Abstract — The IEEE Std 1720™ “Recommended Practice for Near-Field Antenna Measurements” is specifically dedicated to near-field (NF) antenna measurements [1]. It therefore complements the IEEE Std 149-2021™ “IEEE Recommended Practice for Antenna Measurements” which describes general antenna measurement procedures [2]. IEEE Std 1720™ was originally approved in 2012 as a completely new standard by the IEEE Standards Association Standards Board (SASB). It is highly relevant for users performing NF antenna measurements but also the design and evaluation of the antenna measurement facilities. After ten successful years, the standard expires in 2022 and will no longer be an active standard under the IEEE SASB. A “minor revision” of the current standard is ongoing. This paper gives an update on the running activities and discusses the suggested changes to the standard.
