Antenna Test Ranges

Over-The-Air (OTA) Wireless testing applications and Antenna Test ranges to perform both Near-field and Far-field measurements.


Antenna ranges and microwave chambers

Antenna measurement applications are performed in specific Antenna ranges, fully covered with microwave absorbers. The use of these chambers can vary from Telecom 5G/Wireless testing in small test boxes up to satellite testing in large Radar Cross Sections (RCS). Comtest can provide customized solutions for OTA chambers and antenna test ranges to perform both near field and far field measurements. Each microwave chamber is tailored to your specific requirements.

All our antenna test ranges are lined with our polystyrene microwave absorbers. After intensive testing our R&D department has finished the development of our new polystyrene microwave absorbers. Under it’s nickname, the Javelin-Tip, is a high performance absorber that offers performance as well as durability. It is ECO-friendly and REACH & RoHS compliant.

Chamber types

Comtest offers three chamber types for microwave testing. To learn more about Comtest’s microwave chambers, follow the links:
