Descripción
Large antennas need special measurement systems because of their considerable dimensions. Typically, cylindrical near-field systems are appropriate measurement systems for omnidirectional antennas due to the characteristics of their radiation patterns. Furthermore, these systems are also appropriate for sizeable RADAR antennas, since they can be measured on their azimuthal positioner and the probe can be easily translated through a vertical linear slide. Thus, mechanical aspects of measurement systems are rather important since errors in the mechanical set-up can directly affect far-field radiation patterns. This chapter presents an error estimation tool to analyze the most important errors for large L-band RADAR antennas in an outdoor cylindrical acquisition system and the effect of these errors in the calculated far-field radiation pattern. This analysis can be very convenient to evaluate the error budget of the Antenna Under Test (AUT).
