System Information
TRW 40'x30' Horizontal NF Scanner
NSI delivered a 40' x 30' horizontal NF Scanner to TRW for use in testing the payload antennas for the 4 Astrolink satellites. The system operates up to 50 GHz and can scan in planar, plane-polar, and tilted plane-polar modes to measure any of the apertures on the Astrolink satellite.
Galtronics Spherical NF measurement system
NSI was awarded a contract to build two state-of-the-art spherical nearfield measurement systems for Galtronics, a producer of cell-phone antennas. The system provides complete spherical measurements of the antenna with or without human body mockups.
JPL 8' x 8' NF measurement system
NSI designed and delivered an 8' x 8' scanner to JPL for use in qualifying the MLS satellite antenna. The scanner provides a highly accurate plane (3 ┬Ám rms) for measuring the performance of the MLS antennna. The scanner uses a high precision electronic tiltmeter measurements and a active heat control system to achieve its performance.
NSI 300V-18x18 Vertical Planar NF scanner
NSI delivered an 18' x 18' vertical planar scanner to Raytheon for use at the Tobyhanna test station for testing the Firefinder radar antennas
