Spherical Near-Field Range (LA)
We have an antenna test chamber dedicated to Spherical Near-Field measurements at our office in Los Angeles capable of low-frequency measurements down to 300 MHz. This Chamber is 20' (6.1 m) wide, 20' (6.1 m) long and 21' (6.4 m) high and lined with 36" (0.9 m) pyramidal absorber. The system includes a SNF scanner with a 40 (1.0 m) Z-linear translation stage. The system is capable of supporting antenna loads up to 1,000 lb (450 kg) and 5' (1.5 m) in diameter.
The SNF chamber features the NSI-RF-90001D RF state-of-the-art antenna measurement system with the high-performance Panther 9000 receiver and dual Panther 7020 20 GHz sources. This system is identical to the multi-purpose chamber RF system with the addition of low frequency mixers that allow measurements below 1 GHz.
