Key facts

  • In-band OTA measurements on 77/79 GHz automotive radar sensors
  • CATR with bidirectional parabolic reflector on a 1.3 m2 footprint
  • Capable of testing radar modules with aperture size up to 30 cm
  • High speed, high precision 3D tilt-tilt positioner
  • Ultra low reflectivity and exceptional shielding effectiveness

A must-have solution for up-and-coming automotive radar sensors

Transportable CATR based fully anechoic chamber with best-in-class performance

The R&S®ATS1500C antenna test chamber is based on the compact antenna test range (CATR) method and is specially designed for the latest automotive radar sensors. Together with the integrated R&S®AREG100A radar target simulator, crucial radar characteristics are efficiently and accurately measured under far-field conditions. These valuable insights can be utilized to enhance the performance of and precisely calibrate automotive radars to provide an accountable basis for ADAS and autonomous driving.

Features & benefits

Far-field characteristics in a compact chamber

State-of-the-art CATR reflector enabling indirect far-field measurement

Testing radar sensors at 77/79 GHz is challenging because measurements have to be performed at far-field distances to obtain accurate and precise results. Instead of measuring in huge, fixed chambers, the R&S®ATS1500C with a 1.3 m2 footprint is capable of measuring far-field characteristics thanks to the parabolic CATR reflector. The reflector is expertly designed and manufactured to create a far-field condition in the 30 cm quiet zone.

Minimum measuring distance required to achieve far-field condition

R&D, calibration and validation

Wide range of applications to get the most out of the radar sensor

In combination with R&S®AREG100A, the test system can simulate highly accurate targets with defined distance, speed and RCS. In addition, the high speed, high precision 3D positioner makes it the ideal test system for radar calibration. 
Lastly, additional measuring instruments can be added to carry out ETSI and FCC validation, including the operating frequency range, EIRP and even interference tests for the radio equipment directive.

Premium chamber quality

High shielding effectiveness and best-in-class absorbers for low reflection

The R&S®ATS1500C is a fully anechoic chamber with a shielding effectiveness of > 90 dB. With best-in-class pyramidal absorbers built in and an optimized layout, the number of ghost targets is significantly reduced to provide the ideal testing environment for high-end automotive radars that are extremely sensitive.

High speed, high accuracy positioner

The prerequisite for precise angular measurements

The tilt-tilt 3D positioner is tailored for single polarized automotive radar testing. It has an adjustable height to make sure the DUT is always aligned and located at the center of rotation. The large tilt angle in both axes fulfills the requirements of automotive radars and features an angular resolution of 0.03° for precise measurements and radar calibration.

Convenience and flexibility

Wide variety of communication interfaces and feedthroughs

A straightforward web GUI is available to control the 3D positioner. It can also be controlled via Ethernet using simple SCPI like commands, making it very easy to integrate into your software. In addition, abundant feedthroughs are available to offer the flexibility to accommodate DUTs with different requirements. This fulfills your testing needs without compromising on the chamber’s shielding effectiveness.
