Spherical Near-Field Scanner Systems NSI-MI's offers a large variety of Spherical Near-Field Antenna Measurement Systems of various sizes and configurations. The most common is the “Roll over Azimuth” systems where the AUT is mounted on the Roll positioner, which in turn is mounted on an L-bracket, mounted on a Theta positioner.

NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)Cited by: The subject of antenna measurements is one which has undergone revolutionary changes in recent years, in particular within space applications, where high demands are placed upon antenna design and construction.

This book represents the specific measurement technique known as the spherical near-field method. The theoretical treatment of the method is detailed but of sufficient generality to 5/5(2). Conventional far-field measurement ranges often are not adequate for testing such antennas accurately.

Near-field measurement techniques have been developed to increase accuracy, throughput, lower costs, and provide antenna diagnostics. The most commonly. Description. Large Cylindrical Near-field Measurement Systems are ideal for measuring broad beam (azimuth) antennas Spherical near-field scanning book apertures less than fifty twp feet making them ideal for testing stacked linear arrays, cellular and PCS antennas as well as higher frequency antennas with larger apertures.

Hansen has also formulated planar and spherical near-field scanning techniques in the time domain, and derived exact beam representations that are alternatives to the classical multipole expansions. His recent work includes forward and inverse scattering problems for ground-penetrating and subsurface radars.

A number of methods for measuring antenna performance at reduced distances are described, including: modal expansion techniques; plane wave synthesis; and suppressed ground reflection. Consideration is also given to: probe sampling, extended information processing; finite distance focusing; and spherical sampling.

A general method for higher-order probe correction in spherical scanning is obtained from a renormalized least-squares approach. The.

renormalization causes the normal matrix of the least-squares problem to closely resemble the identity matrix when most of the energy of the. We introduce a near-field, spherical-scanning algorithm for antenna measurements that relaxes the usual condition requiring data points to be on a regular spherical grid.

Computational complexity is of the same order as for the standard (ideal-positioning) spherical-scanning technique. The new procedure has been tested extensively. Within high-frequency diffraction theory, he has developed methods for calculating scattering from corners, narrow grooves, and shadow boundaries.

Hansen has also formulated planar and spherical near-field scanning techniques in the time domain, and derived exact beam representations that are alternatives to the classical multipole expansions. This book represents the specific measurement technique known as the spherical near-field method.

The theoretical treatment of the method is detailed but of sufficient generality to make the book useful as a basis for further research on near-field measurements and antenna coupling problems.
