RF Testing Capabilities

For all our antenna and radome products, there are unique electrical test requirements specific to each. As a result, we develop test procedures accordingly. In some cases, specialized test fixtures and jigs are designed and fabricated in-house.  


Testing is conducted in one of our many ranges, which includes low frequency outdoors, far-field indoor ranges or large compact range. Each of the ranges are configured slightly different to accommodate unique test requirements. One of the ranges has specialized switching that enhances measurement accuracy and minimizes test time for a complex phased array radome and has become recognized as the standard benchmark for the particular product being manufactured and tested.

All RF Test Ranges are available for rent upon request. Use the contact us page or reach out directly via email or phone to learn more.


Large Compact Range

​For certain types of antennas and radomes, the compact range enhances our measurement accuracy and provides unparalleled correlation between the measurement results and the installed system performance.

  • Quiet zone of 8’ x 8’ x 5.3’ (L x W x H) and is capable of measuring from 2 to 50 GHz

  • RF equipment is based on commercially available network analyzers

  • Configured with a model tower (either fiberglass or steel depending on the unit under test weight requirements) mounted on a linear slide on an azimuth over elevation over slide positioning system​

  • System antenna ensures the radome is illuminated as it will be when mounted on the aircraft. In some cases, Meggitt will also fabricate and use a representation of the surrounding aircraft structure to accurately simulate the as-installed aircraft environment


  • Capable of measuring radar cross section of radomes and antennas. In this case, a pylon or foam column is used to support the test body and unit under test
