Abstract:

The report presents the results of a program to study advanced antenna measurement concepts and to breadboard certain promising instrumentation approaches. The applications of most interest are relatively high gain antennas in the 1-15 GHz region. A typical instantaneous bandwidth of 1 GHz is required. On the current phase of this program, an octave bandwidth 2-4 GHz amplitude - only system was designed, breadboarded, and tested. This system will provide average pattern information over any portion of the 2-4 GHz octave. This amplitude - only system is described, and measured data are presented. Tradeoff studies of a direct phase measurement system versus a group delay type of measurement system for broadband antenna measurements were completed.
