Far-Field Antenna Test Range

Location: Harwell Campus

The Far Field Antenna Test Range, part of DISC, provides the UK with a facility that replaces the UK’s capability that was previously available at Cobham until December 2015.

The facility is located on the Harwell campus and 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 range 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.
