This paper describes a thorough evaluation of an outdoor automotive antenna test range. Electric-field uniformity results are generated from accurate, full-wave electromagnetic simulations of the test range. Measured electric-field results using an ultrawideband measurement system are also presented. The simulations and measurements indicate that the turntable has a significant influence on the field uniformity.
