Far Field Antenna Test Range

The Far Field Antenna Test Range offers a 400-metre antenna test range that can be used for the development, characterisation and type approval of satellite communications antenna for satellite telecommunications networks.

The Far Field Range is available for short, medium and long term lease (subject to availability) and our experts are on hand to support you with each stage of your product’s development.

The Far Field Range is located on the Harwell Campus and offers the capability to test satellite communication bands C, Ka, Ku and X, helping satellite communication terminal manufacturers develop and test new products. This UK capability has been attracting interest from international organisations and is generating new opportunities for Harwell and for the wider space community.
