Fully anechoic antenna test chamber

The UTS Antenna Chamber is one of Australia’s largest fully anechoic chambers. With a test frequency range of 700MHz to 50GHz, this lab is capable of testing a variety of Radio Frequency related products. Combined with the fully spherical antenna measurement system, characterisation of antenna elements, or arrays, in addition to validating communication system’s performance is possible.

The Antenna Chamber is suitable for

  • Near-field Antenna testing
  • Far-field Antenna testing
  • OTA communications testing
