The interpanel gap scattering effect in a compact range Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: An analytical approach coupled with experimental determination of a key parameter has been developed to quantify the effect of the interpanel gap scattering in a compact range. The results show the effect of scattering on the copol and x-pol field distribution in the quiet zone area. The effect of the gap scattering can be regarded as an additional root mean square error on the antenna surface accuracy.
