Uncertainty Assessment for Standard Antenna Measurements on the Open Area Test Site
Dennis G. Camell
The National Institute of Standards and Technology calibrates electromagnetic compatibility antennas using the standard antenna method. This method uses a standard antenna to precisely measure the electric field at a location. An antenna under test is placed where the standard antenna was located to determine its antenna factor. Complete uncertainties are determined for calibrations performed on the open-area-test-site leading to a statement of uncertainty of the method. The results of this procedure yield a standard uncertainty of 0.4 dB. Assessment of this uncertainty statement and its details are presented in this paper.
