Meeting the antenna challenge for NewSpace terminals

Presented by Guenter Pfeifer and Dr. Ing. Yvonne Weitsch

New satellite constellations in LEO, MEO or GEO orbits and the integration of NTN in terrestrial communication networks will help to provide seamless connectivity. Key technologies for establishing the links are antennas. Accurate and efficient testing to ensure proper operation is crucial. This webinar will outline the characteristics of near field and far field testing, and describe the challenges that arise from testing devices of different size, form, factor and weight, and how to efficiently counter these challenges with compact test solutions for mass market user terminals.

In this webinar, you will learn how to/ more about:

  • Near-field and far-field antenna testing
  • Near-field to far-field transformation
  • Compact antenna test ranges (CATR)
