Ultra-Wideband Antenna Pattern Characterization in a Non-Ideal EM Facility



Jason Veneman, David R. Novotny, Chriss A. Grosvenor, Robert T. Johnk, Seturnino Canales


We present and analyze a procedure for performing relative, ultra-wideband antenna pattern measurements in a non-ideal EM facility. Ultra-wideband, short-impulse, TEM horn transmission measurements were performed and compared with computer-modeled radiation pattern results. These measurements allowed us to analyze radiation lobes and nulls in both bore-sight and off-axis antenna positions. The results show that the measurements performed in this testing environment agreed well with computer models.
