Typical projects include evaluating the performance matching between antenna and modem, or running the unit through a series of environmental tests.
Our fully equipped testing facility includes a new, enlarged, anechoic chamber. The chamber rotator can handle up to 250 lbs. and can accommodate antennas up to 6-feet long. For unusual Sizes, custom test fixtures can be built. The chamber is covered wall-to-wall with foam cones to absorb RF energy that interfere with testing.
We have the capability to switch out antenna horns inside the chamber for frequencies ranging from 450 MHz to 6.0 GHz.
The engineers generate data and reports based on the testing. Antenna characterization data and reports include: impedance testing, radiation patters, gain over frequency plots, and VSWR charts to measure return loss. Mobile Mark Engineers have the ability to generate both 2D and 3D Elevation/Azimuth plots using data retrieved from our Anechoic Chamber.
