Array-fed cylindrical reflector antenna for automotive OTA tests in Random Line-Of-Sight
Paper in proceedings, 2016

In this paper we look into a near-field measurement setup consisting of a cylindrical reflector and a linear array feed. The main application is Random Line-Of-Sight Over-The- Air measurements in anechoic or semi-anechoic chambers (i.e., anechoic chamber with reflecting floor). More specifically, the aim is testing the wireless communication systems on automotive vehicles. The aim is to generate the uniform field distribution of a plane wave over a pre-defined test zone containing the car or at least the part of the car containing the antenna(s). The field intensity variations over the testing zone have been investigated for reference measurements over the testing frequency bandwidth, i.e., 1.6-2.8 GHz. © 2016 European Association of Antennas and Propagation.
