Our team is designing and building an antenna measurement system for use by G U and LHC2 (an antenna design company). We are building a physical antenna positioning system, capable of rotating various sized antennas about two axis; producing a software suite capable of controlling the positioning system while also taking and analyzing data from a network analyzer; and providing calibration and operation procedures for the device. Ultimately, our project will provide antenna designers with the ability to analyze test antenna and view the three dimensional performance characteristics of the antennas.
