Outdoor RF Test Range Design & Management

When it comes to designing an outdoor RF test range, it’s important to understand the goal of the antenna test range facility and design one that meets a variety of mechanical requirements, including wind load resistance, quiet RF environment, appropriate antenna supports and proper licensing from the FCC.

Few companies offer the expertise in RF, antenna and radar cross section measurements and outdoor RF test range design as BerrieHill Research Division of ARA, which has contracted with government and military facilities to design, develop and manage outdoor RF test ranges suitable for testing antennas, RCS and system integrations.

Our capabilities in test range design include test scenario development and designing custom measurement and testing applications, including outdoor ground-bounce range testing and collections of HRR, SAR, and GMTI data from airborne assets.

Antenna test range design and management activities include:

  • Development of measurement test matrices
  • Recommendations for and acquisition of equipment
  • Transportation to remote sites
  • Environmental qualification
  • Execution of the data collection
  • Assurance of data quality
  • Data post-processing and archiving
