ATS06 3D Microwave Antenna Training Lab

ATS06 is the world’s most advanced Antenna Communication Training and Measurement Lab. It is the world’s first Complete 3D measurement training system providing True 3D pattern of an antenna. ATS06 complies with IEEE Std 149-1979, “Test Procedure for Antennas”. The complete setup requires minimum space and can be used as a benchtop system.


The complete setup consists of:

➢ USB powered calibrated software-controlled Vector Signal Generator and a calibrated software-controlled Vector Signal Analyzer
➢ Software-controlled 3D positioner with very low RCS
➢ Linux based Data Visualization and Management Software
➢ More than 20 different antennas consisting of narrowband, broadband, directional, Omni-directional and different polarizations


Broadband calibrated reference antenna for gain measurement and broadband directional coupler for return loss measurement. The setup works as spectrum analyzer, vector signal source and vector signal analyzer. It Covers broadcast television, satellite TV communication. Future ready from simple FM to QPSK, QAM standard to whatever future may hold.
