International comparison of antenna measurement results between national measurement laboratories supports interoperability of communication equipment in todays world market. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is the pilot National Measurement Institute (NMI) for an international comparison measurement of two Ku-band standard gain horn antennas. This international comparison includes a total of twelve NMIs: Australia, China, Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, Japan, Russia, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and United States. A variety of measurement techniques such as extrapolation, far field and gain transfer, were used in this international comparison. The individual measurement techniques used by each NMI are discussed and the gain measurement results and associated uncertainties from each NMI are presented in this paper.
