Anechoic Chamber

The CTTC anechoic chamber is a turnkey solution by ETS-Lindgren for antenna characterization and wireless telecommunication devices measurements. The system can be used for antenna measurements in far-field test distances for more generic antenna properties such as 3D radiation pattern. The automatic antenna measurement setup includes multi-axis positioner, positioning controller, commercial software for measurement equipment and positioned control.
