Anechoic Chamber Radiated Environment (ACRE)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Spectra Research Inc. (S*R) proposes to configure off-the-shelf specialized antennas for installation in the wall of an anechoic chamber to provide a quick look test capability where fine direction of arrival (DOA) is not required. Several technical approaches to the antenna installation will be evaluated to determine the best technique to use before actual installation. S*R will subcontract to Georgia Tech Research Institute to apply their expertise in RF radiated environments to select the best approach and support the design of the billboard array alternative. The team will develop a preliminary design for movable billboard arrays than can be used to rapidly change DOA during the test of electronic systems. The arrays will be fabricated, installed and tested during a phase II effort.
