Does this Sound Familiar?

Understanding antenna calibration standards is a constant challenge.
You don’t have proper calibration capacity and/or facilities.
The complexity of calibration is increasing.
You lack technical resources to stay compliant.

Why Do You Need Antenna Calibration?

Antenna calibration verifies the EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) of products. Specific instruments are used to measure radiated emissions and ensure compliance, capability, and accuracy.

There are set regulatory requirements for each country that any product (including radar and antenna technology) must meet. Antenna calibration must be conducted by a facility that meets compliancy standards to preserve the traceability and accuracy of results.

An antenna’s performance will decline over time due to electrical and physical flaws. Periodic calibration is required to stay compliant. Repeated calibration ensures optimal performance by identifying electrical issues and comparing results from previous tests.  

Antenna calibration will keep the technology operating properly and safely. Issues with the accuracy of emissions could have dire consequences if it interferes with other electromagnetic equipment. Calibration ensures these interferences are avoided to support optimal performance.
