Strong points

  • Range of positioners designed to run within indoor and outdoor environments
  • Technology combining accuracy (0,01° to 0,001°) and reliability
  • Possibility to drive simultaneously several axes according to options
  • Position measurement by means of absolute optical encoder of 21 bits resolution
  • Advantages :
    • No initializing reference run
    • Information digitized at source
  • Option : integration of RF rotary joint (maxi 40Ghz) and multi-track electric collector according to the customer’s need

Application field

  • Compact range equipped with 1 or 2 reflectors
    • Radome measurement
    • Antenna measurement
  • Anechoic room
    • Near field : array or active antenna measurement
    • Far field : antenna or other measurement
  • Outdoor range
    • Far field : transmission and reception separated by a distance up to several kilometres

Type of measurement

  • Radome measurement to set :
    • The radome transmission
    • The beam deflection
    • The radiation pattern change (flash lobe)
  • Measuring antenna only or antenna mounted on a support (satellite,...)
    • Gain, radiation and polarization measurements
    • Calibration
    • Characterization
  • CRS measurement: Streamlined mast
    • Model (missile, aircraft, etc...)
    • Mock-up (missile, aircraft, etc...)
