RF Systems Test Facility

The RF Technology Group manages the Lincoln Laboratory RF Systems Test Facility, which includes a compact range, a near-field scanner range, a tapered chamber, a millimeter-wave chamber, and a system test chamber. These five anechoic chambers allow for antenna, radar cross section (RCS), electromagnetic interference (EMI), and system tests and measurements in the frequency range of 150 MHz to 100 GHz. The two larger chambers (system test and compact range) can accommodate test articles weighing up to 2000 pounds, making use of an overhead crane (system test), or a rolling gantry with crane (compact range). The near-field scanner chamber is used primarily for testing phased array antenna panels.
