CATR full form

 What is the full form of CATR?


  • Compact Antenna Test Range

What does CATR mean?

A CATR allows electrically large antennas to be measured at a much shorter distance than a traditional far-field test range would require. A source antenna radiates a spherical wave in the direction of a parabolic collimating it into a planer wave for aperture illumination of a device under test in compact range. The size of the reflector its edge treatment, and the absorbers all influence its lowest operational frequency.
