Resources for Antenna Metrology

Recent decades have seen a proliferation of wireless systems for higher data rates and greater capacity. Antennas are and continue to grow as a major component in wireless communication systems and monitoring systems for health, environmental concerns and realizing current and future wireless communications. Antenna Metrology refers to accurate measurement techniques for testing of antennas to ensure that the antenna meets specifications or simply to characterize it. Typical parameters of antennas are gain, radiation pattern, beamwidth, polarization, and impedance. Calibrated antennas are essential for applications such as satellite communications, Earth remote sensing, and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing. There is a comprehensive range of facilities for calibrating antennas covering wide range of frequency. These include an open area test site, fully anechoic room (FAR), extrapolation range, spherical near-field scanner and microwave EMC chamber.
