PAA calibration features using REV method with a moving probe antenna


A.M. Shitikov – Ph. D. (Eng.), Head of Sector, PJSC «Radiofizika» (Moscow) A.V. Sablin – Engineer, PJSC «Radiofizika» (Moscow) E-mail: S.P. Durandin – Leading Engineer, PJSC «Radiofizika» (Moscow)

The question of PAA calibration with a moving probe antenna was discussed. The REV method was applied to obtain required parameters. It was shown, that position of the probe antenna should be known to achieve the correct calibration results, and also PAA phase and amplitude patterns are known. Probe position should be known real-time, during all calibration sequence. It was found the se-quence for phase and amplitude distribution. If information about PAA patterns is not available, method of calibration must be modified.
