Measurement Capabilities

The SPCR reflector is specified by the manufacturer to operate from 2 GHz to 100 GHz. The EMAC facility currently has linearly polarized feed horns which cover frequencies from 500 MHz to 18 GHz.

Test targets are oriented with an Orbit azimuth-over-elevation positioner which is rated at 2500 lbs maximum vertical load and 2500 ft-lbs maximum bending moment. The positioner is driven with a Scientific Atlanta 4139 positioner controller.

The instrumentation at the EMAC facility is based on the HP8510C Vector Network Analyzer. Consequently, in addition to radiation and scattering patterns, all S-parameter based measurements can be performed. The frequency range of the instrumentation is from 10 MHz to 20 GHz.
