Testing of Antennas, Antenna Feeder Devices (AFDs) and Antenna Waveguide Devices (AWDs)

AFDs complex is a complex of stands to test and study antennas, AFDs, and AWDs. The complex hardware permit testing instruments and products for electromagnetic compatibility.

Testing types

  • Measurement of spatial antenna radiation patterns, matching parameters, transfer constants of antennas and UHF instruments, parameters of solid dielectrics;
  • testing of immunity of products (instruments) to radio-frequency electromagnetic field and conducted interference induced by it;;
  • measurement of man-made interference;;
  • testing of a product for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC).
